Daily devotional: Turning from worthless things to the living God

Scripture
"Men, why are you doing this? We too are only men, human like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them."
Acts 14:15 NIV

Observation
God is calling us to turn from all worthless things to Himself--the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them! What an awesome exchange. FWIW, as I was thinking about this, I was reminded of an older but beautiful worship song by The Katinas called Draw Me Close To You. The lyrics are a beautiful prayer of worship and commitment to the living God.

Application
Consider what worthless things I find myself drawn to, tempting to replace the place that rightfully belongs to the living God! Keep my eyes on Him.

Prayer
Lord, You are all I want, all I've ever needed, just as the song proclaims. I want to be near to You, reminded constantly of You. Help me not to be distracted by elevating worthless things above You.
