MemorizeTheBibleWithMe.comMy Power, My Strength, My Wealth!  Really?

3400 years ago Moses was about to hand over the leadership of a new generation of Israelites to Joshua and he made an empassioned restatement of the Law and God’s Covenenant with Israel.

We call this book:  Deuteronomy

In fact, if you have a chance one day, read the book of Deuteronomy and note how many times that Moses emphasizes “Remember…and never forget”

The Israelites were in danger of “forgetting God” when they became prosperous and Moses knew this.

The same is true for each of us today.

When times are good it is so easy to forget God.

You may say to yourself,

“My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.”

But remember the Lord your God,

for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.

Deuteronomy 8:17-18

Are you like me and find it easy to “forget God” when things are going well? 

How do you stay gounded?

God Bless and Have a Great Week!
