Edifier du Jour--Deuteronomy 8:11-14(NASB)
11: "Beware that you do not forget the LORD your God by not keeping His commandments and His ordinances and His statutes which I am commanding you today; 12: otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them, 13: and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies, 14: then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.My dreams tonight had a recurring theme; that prayer and devotion to God were ongoing things that we don't graduate from. You don't get X semester hours of righteousness credit and then get allowed to ignore God and do your own thing. We tend to be foul-weather friends of God, on our knees in prayer when things are going bad and off on our own things when things are going good. Keep doing the things that you are supposed to be doing, especially if you think you have spiritually matured, for it is those mundane devotions like prayer, Bible study, helping other people and being in fellowship with other believers that helps keeps you from falling away.
