It’s easy to forget God.
So easy to forget Him during our struggles. We forget He can help us.
So easy to forget our Lord during our triumphs. With all the praise given to us by others and even ourselves it’s easy to forget to thank Him.
How often do you hear about a famous person who was raised in a Christian home but now has abandoned the faith. They got their millions and exactly what they needed so they feel they no longer need God.
I’m not picking on the rich this happens to people in all the different economic classes.
We all forget about the Lord sometimes.
Why is that?
Because it’s easy.
The alternative is hard.
Putting your faith in God when it seems like there is no hope can be terrifying.
But the Lord says “Fear not”.*
Praising God for your accomplishments rather then giving yourself all the credit is hard and takes a humble heart.
But the Lord says, “Those who humble themselves will be exalted and those who exalt themselves will be humbled”.**
We forget God because we can.
We will continue to do this until we can’t.
We will continue to do this until we are face to face with the Lord.
What will happen then?
Will you be welcomed as His child in to His home or will He forget you as you forgot Him?
It all depends.
Have you accepted Him and His grace?
Or have you rejected Him?
The ball is in your court, if you reject Him, He will reject you.
If you accept Him, He will accept you. And your life will change forever and ever.
He will be with you always.
Have a Blessed Week,
