Certainly, looking inside yourself is likely to make you feel worse.
It may be fearful to face some of the things deeply buried inside.
But it is necessary. If you feel it is too much to handle to deal with everything at once, simply use the course exercises to work on one issue.
Then, repeat the process when you feel strong enough to deal with the other stuff. Don’t rush God’s healing process.
Download the My Idols worksheet to use in identifying your Idols.
Think of idols as something we own or idolize. Our culture creates idols out of singers, dancers, writers, TV personalities, movie stars, and models.
However, the Bible calls things we create in our own heart or by our own hands as the real idol that must be dealt with before true healing occurs.
Identify any known IDOLS in your life.
The reason for this is that we live in a culture that is self-motivated and driven by lusts for power and control.
In the search to gratify our hungry self, we turn to idols without even recognizing it.
Isaiah 31:7 says: ‘For in that day every man shall throw away his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made for yourselves.’
An idol can be things of material gain. Cars, boats, computers, homes, clothes, jewelry etc.
As indicated in the verse above, an idol can be anything created by our own hands or by our way of life.
Anything that you have placed on the throne of your heart that replaces God is an idol.
The problem with idols is that they always fail you. Idols always hurt you. Idols are unable to give you true joy and happiness.
Children can become an obsession and form of idolatry just as a ministry can easily become an idol to a minister or a pastor or priest to the congregation member.
Anything that replaces God on the throne of your heart is an IDOL.
