The Lord told Moses to warn Joshua about the dangers of being too comfortable and too ‘blessed.’
For I will bring them into the land I swore to give their ancestors – a land flowing with milk and honey. There they will become prosperous, eat all the food they want, and become fat. But they will begin to worship other gods; they will despise me and break my covenant. And when great disasters come down on them this song will stand as evidence against them, for it will never be forgotten by their descendants. I know the intentions of these people, even now before they have entered the land I swore to give them. Deut 31:20-21
God allows us free choice – even when he knows our choices are going to be bad for us.
If you live in the USA or most ‘western’ situations you are blessed. If you have access to the Internet you are abundantly blessed.
What will you do with the blessings you have been given? Will you thank God for them and acknowledge Him as the giver of all good things in your life?
Will you take them for granted; keep seeking more and more and more with no regard for who God is and what He might desire for you?
As you begin to see God as the source of blessing He will lead you to ever greater knowledge, information and truth. Truth about Himself and the world that He made.
We all get to choose how we respond to the blessings we have.
