Psalm 115 is a psalm of praise to God. All of us are worshipers of something: idols, ourselves, or God. Only God is worthy of our worship and praise.
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory… (v.1)
Idols today can be lots of things – material possessions, relationships, hobbies, – even our families. In the author’s day this was true too – but often idols were pagan gods made of stone or wood.
He spends the bulk of this chapter reminding us what those idols really are:
- They are made of physical materials by the hands of men (v.4)
- The have mouths… but they can’t speak
- They have eyes… but they can’t see
- They have ears… but they cannot hear
- They can’t smell, feel, walk, or make a sound
His point is clear – why would we trust in that? Things that cannot help us?
What do you trust in? I mean really trust in? Are you trusting in things that cannot really help you?
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7
Work hard today to put your trust in Lord. He’s the only One worthy of it.
