Getting Too Comfortable
But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
All to often I find myself falling into a rut with my faith. Not where I feel like a blockade between me and God, but where I feel to comfortable when things are going right, so I just don’t reach out as I should. I have been here many times, as I am sure you have to.
We find our lives going good, if not great, and we fail to realize that we still need God. He gave us the gifts of comfort because of our devotion, work, and faith. He didn’t give those to us so we could simply vanish from his side. He rewarded us, now we must also be grateful in His gifts.
If we don’t praise Him for what we have, he will certainly let you know and, with me, it usually results in some downfalls and some humility giving events and circumstances. And I find myself right back asking Him for His help and forgiveness.
I’m not saying that if we praise Him when we are going good in life that we won’t be met with faith testing challenges, it just let’s Him know you still rely on Him and have humility in the fact that we can’t do it alone.
God, I know things may be going good right now, but I humbly come to You and thank you for everything in my life. I know it would not be possible without You and Your Grace. I ask that You continually remind me of Your importance if I find myself to comfortable in my own life.
