2 Chronicles 12:1 – After Reheboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel with him abandoned the law of the Lord. (NIV 1078)
My Musing – This is a typical scenario. Before we are established we lean on God a lot. Afterwards, we have a tendency to look at who we’ve become and what we’ve accomplished rather than who got us there and made it all possible in the first place.
My Advice – After you graduate and become established in your job, and you are enjoying life and living comfortably, be on guard. It is at times like these that we can begin to feel self-sufficient and complacent in our spiritual lives and in our dependence upon God. Do not let that happen.
