Isaiah 10:15 Shall the ax boast itself against him who chops with it? Or shall the saw exalt itself against him who saws with it? As if a rod could wield itself against those who lift it up, Or as if a staff could lift up, as if it were not wood! You know when things are going good, people tend to spend less time with the Lord and they start forgetting that the Lord is always with them through the good times, as well as the bad. As people forget about the Lord, they start doing things on their own, thinking they have everything covered. They tend to not ask counsel from the Lord along with thinking that they know what they are doing. But when they go along in life forgetting about the Lord, eventually they will fall, and when they do, they are quick to call out to God for help. But you know what? I don’t think that we as Christians would have as many problems if we truly sought the Lord at all times, whether good or bad. Psalms 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah Even king David knew this as he wrote this Psalm, notice it say to Trust in Him at all times” not just when things are going bad, but in the good times also. How would you like it if the only time your children talked to you or spent time with you was when they wanted something, but when they were happy, they totally ignored you? Isn’t that how we treat God sometimes? We only talk to Him or pour our hearts out when things are going bad or when we want something from Him? So in the good times, stop boasting like you did something great, but rather boast in the Lord and what He is doing in your life. Or shall the saw exalt itself against him who saws with it? God has said to: “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 So, if we feel that God is not near us, and we know that God can not lie, and as He just said that “He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Then who left Whom? It is us who turned our back on God and think that we can walk this thing called life ahead of Him instead of with Him. So today, right now, choose this day to walk with the Lord in both the good and bad times, in the time of plenty and the time of famine. God will never leave you nor forsake you, so don’t leave Him or forsake God either. Hebrews 13:5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
