That may sound trite to you, but if you take the time to look at it you'll see that this is idolatry and it happens more than we are even aware of. Remember, the human heart is innately sinful and desires to worship something so when it is not actively focused on and worshiping God, it is worshiping something else and that is idolatry. When I realized this, I immediately repented and asked God to restore my desire for Him alone. I had to bring my sin into the light and admit to God that I desired coffee over Him. When you put it like that, it sounds pretty sick, doesn't it? This, my friend, is the human heart and exactly why we need Jesus so desperately.
I thank God for revealing to me the true nature of my heart and protecting me from falling right back into sin. He showed me through the Lenten season that I don't need coffee; I need Him. There were times when I was tired, yes, but in those difficult times I sought Him and He rescued me. Faithfully. There were also times when I just wanted something fun, but again I sought Him and was satisfied. Completely. My soul drank of the water He offers and it created a spring inside of me that flowed abundantly - more abundantly than any specialty drink made by Starbucks ever could.
I still haven't had any coffee. I'm not sure I want to; in fact, I'm downright afraid to. Every time I consider the idea, I fear the idolatry in my heart rising from its slumber with evil eyes, preparing to devour me again. I like my Peppermint Mochas (even outside of Christmas season), but God has shown me that the price is not just a few dollars. Without watchful eyes on my heart and complete dependence upon Him, it may cost me my soul. That's a price I'm not willing to pay.
