Now Playing: I Deal in Hope Daily Devotional Blog
Hebrews 2:1 GW For this reason we must pay closer attention to what we have heard. Then we won't drift away from the truth.
If there is one thing I can say with certainty it is that I forget. I forget as daily responsibilities deaden past emotions, thoughts, feelings, memories--even commitments.
Foremost it is easy to forget commitments we make to God. Though we don't much care for fair-weather friends, how often are we fair-weather believers, letting anything and everything separate us from our commitment to God and so separate us from Him?
Excuses: Too busy to read His Word or pray. Sleep or activities take us from worship and fellowship. Problems/pain/hurt/life happens and we allow anger and who knows what all fill our hearts, effectively putting a barrier between us and Christ. We blame Him when the choice is ours.
God doesn't need fair-weather followers. (He has plenty of those.) His blessings are for those who remember their commitment, who seek to know and follow Him, no matter what, who recognize that He is God and only He is worthy of worship and trust.
Like Job we need to say, "Though He slay me, yet will I Trust Him."
