When God ushers you into the land He promised – When you take it all in and settle down, make sure you don’t forget how you got there: GOD brought you!
: Deuteronomy 6:6-12
In our modern world where success is frequently seen as primarily the result of self-effort and hard work, and where we are often taught that such success is one of our “inalienable rights,” it becomes all too easy to forget that the Creator God has allowed any blessings we enjoy. God warns that forgetting Him comes at a cost far greater than any economic downturn. We can easily lose the only always-true compass point for our lives when we allow our egos to take precedence over the only One who offers complete satisfaction and joy.
Thank you, Father, for your great love and grace. Help me never forget that you are the only one who provides.
