Many times, we tend to forget God when life is going well; but wait until illness, storms, unemployment, hurt amongst others and we remember to seek God. Moses warned the ancient Israelites not to forget God and not to stop following His ways when life was good (Deu8:11). Ecclesiastes 12:1 urges us to “remember your Creator…before the days of trouble comes”.

Getting close to God while we are strong and healthy prepares us to lean on Him for support and hope when those difficult days in life come.

Father, I always need You. Forgive me for thinking I am sufficient in myself. Help me to follow You and Your ways whether life is easy or difficult. Thank You for caring for me.
