The Altar: Where are You Seeking Refuge?

God is calling us to be intimate with Him. This week we learned about Adonijah the son of David who got himself into a lot of trouble when he tried to glorify himself and exalt his own life. Often Satan tries to trick us into believing that we have a right to certain things. He coerces us into claiming these things and the result is that we often fix our hope in these things and not in God. We find ourselves angry when God does not give us what we feel we deserve. What is your heart and hope fixed in? Adonijah found that his own plans and schemes only led to his own demise. He ended up running from the law, running as a fugitive, yet in his desperate state he found hope at the horns of the altar. No matter how messed up we think we are or how great we think we are, our hearts need some serious re-calibration.

Scripture Reading: 1 Kings 1; Matthew 9:10-13
