We have everything we want. We’re living the dream. We have our families, a house, dependable vehicles, a good job, and we’re financially stable. Life is good.

*It’s Sunday, but it’s raining. – We’ll go to church next week.
*This will be a good time to pray and read the Bible. – Our TV show is on, we’ll do it later.
*Don’t do that. Honor God with your life. – This won’t hurt. I’m only human.

When life is good and we’re satisfied with where we are, keeping our enthusiasm for the things of God seems burdensome. We get so content with life until we tell ourselves we don’t have to do the things above to be comfortable. God understands. We make our hard work, education, and experience the reasons for our success; meanwhile, we minimize God and the part He played. These thoughts and excuses are planted in our heads by Satan.

Every good thing we have is because of God. God gave us the intelligence to finish school. He was the One who gave us the job for experience. He was the One who gave us the body for hard work. The least we can do is maintain and eventually build on our commitment to God.

It’s not until we have a big desire or face a difficult situation that we want to get back to the things of God. And true to His nature, God willingly takes us back.

Resist the urge to forget God based on how comfortable we are in life. Maintain that enthusiasm for God and watch Him do more for you than you could have even imagined.

Romans 12:11 (NIV) Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. 12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
