When Your Needs Are Met, Don’t Forget


After you have what you prayed for, remember God.

Deuteronomy 8:11-18 says, 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, laws, and decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud, and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that it might go well with you in the end. 17 You may say, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 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 ancestors, as it is today.

It is easy to enjoy life and get caught up in things/people instead of the one who created us. We stop receiving guidance/ counsel and lean on our understanding. We stop spending time with God and only talk to God when our subsequent trial comes.

Psalm 103 says2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgives all thine iniquities, who health all thy diseases.

During this time of receiving blessings, let us remember God. Just like we remember our loved ones who have passed on, famous people, and the achievements of others, we should do the same for our Creator.

When your needs are met, do not forget!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for remembering me by giving up your only Son, Jesus, to die for my sins. God, I remember you when I receive what I have prayed for. I repent in the past, only coming to you for what I want and need. God, I fellowship with you daily. I worship you, God my Creator, not people and things. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
