Deuteronomy 4:39 (NLT)
So remember this and keep it firmly in mind: The Lord is God both in heaven and on earth, and there is no other god!

Moses often addressed the nation of Israel and reminded them of all the awesome things God had done for them. He went through an account of everything God did, from taking them out of Egypt—feeding them, guiding them, protecting them—to the time when they were about to enter the Promised Land. The one thing Moses cautioned them most about was to not create any idols or to worship any images of anything. He reminded them God is the only God, and He is a jealous God. He warned them that if they forgot God and started worshiping other gods, they would surely perish in every way (Deuteronomy 8:19 KJV).

In today’s world, there are gods all around us. A god is anything we focus all our time, energy, and resources on. It can be anything or anybody we place above God.

We all have weaknesses and areas we need to guard so they don’t become our god. For some people, it may be alcohol, smoking, tv, a specific hobby, or even their children. For others, however, their job or career becomes their god. Why? Because that’s what they focus their resources, find their self-worth, and center their entire life around. If your career is an area of temptation for you, simply offer it, and everything you do, to the Lord. Obey what He tells you to do and give Him the glory for your successes. Put God above all, “then you will enjoy a long life in the land the Lord your God is giving you for all time” (v. 40).
