Do We Leave God in the Background?

And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which He sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildest not, And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantest not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; Then beware lest thou forget the LORD which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.  Deuteronomy, Chapter 6, verses 10-12.

We may read this Bible passage and think it really doesn’t apply to us and our daily lives, but that’s incorrect.  How many times do we turn to God when things are going badly in our lives, our jobs or when a loved one is very ill?  We ask God to take care of these desperate situations and He does so in the way that He determines is best.  When things are resolved, do we spend the same amount of time focusing on God, or do we leave Him in the background until the next traumatic situation arises?  That’s something to think about.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
