Hosea 12, 13, 14
Focus Verse: But when they had grazed, they became full, they were filled, and their heart was lifted up; therefore they forgot Me. – Hosea 13:6
We are filled to overflowing by the gifts that God freely gives. Everything that we have comes from Him. Everything that we are is because of Him. But once we are filled with good gifts, we must be careful that we do not forget the Giver.
Thinking that our fullness is due to our own education or hard work instead of due to God’s goodness is an indication of a heart that is proud. It shows that our trust is in ourselves and not in God.
The reasons why we often forget God (e.g. life, wealth, relationships – which all come from Him) are the very reasons we should remember Him.
