Organizing the Inside – Day 162 When I Am Firmly Established

1But when Rehoboam was firmly established and strong, he abandoned the Law of the LORD, and all Israel followed him in this sin.
~2 Chronicles 12:1

Why did Rehoboam turn his back on God once he was firmly established and strong?  Is it easier to trust God when we feel we need Him most, especially when we are trying to carry out something? Do we rely more on God when there is no place left to turn?

What happens to our relationship with God once we are established and strong?

When things are going great,  and we  have become strong… then is the time to be careful and remember the one and only source of our strength.

You point out something good here in that we always seem to run to God as the last resort and not to Him as the first option. We need to see Him as our answer before we try things by our own might and power. 😀

Great Post Liz. Happy Sunday 🙂

Sherline, that is so true. I caught myself the other day as soon as I got a little pain that lasted more than a few minutes my first thought was, oh maybe I need to go to the doctor. Then I caught myself, I want to get to the point that going to God is my first and immediate response. Thanks for your comment!

Liz, when we are strong, we must remember to be humble because we will have storms to come that will be stronger than before. We must allow God to sit on the throne at all times.
Keep praying at His feet and asking for His mercies and protection. Never place ourselves above Him. Amen.
