When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. “But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deut8:10-11. We must always have an attitude of gratitude and remember God’s goodness in our life, especially in the good times. Ironically it’s in our difficult times when we tend to draw nearer to God. However if we keep our focus on Him we may not need to go through the same hardships. It’s not that you won’t face the same situations, but its in your nearness to God that your focus, faith and trust will be in Him, so you will go through the situations with Him, in His strength and peace. Praise God today that as we keep close to Him, we won’t drift away from Him in the good times where we can stumble and fall.
