Jeremiah 2:27 KJV
Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
I’ve heard many pastors talk against using God as a spare tyre. Most Christians only remember there’s a God when they are in trouble. Apparently, this is an age-old phenomenon.
In Jeremiah’s days, Israel was a caught up in the same web. They loved, revered and worshipped rocks and trees and yet would cry to God when they’re in desperate moments.
It’s only logical that God should be peeved whenever this happens. Fortunately, His mercies are boundless and beyond reasoning, so He accommodates all that goes on without punishing us the way He should. But does this give us warrant to continue in our ways?
Certainly not, if you need God to sort you out in desperate times, then you too need to ‘sort’ Him out in the good times. Keep a relationship with Him that is independent of the times and seasons of your life. This is His most desirable attitude of you.
Have a blessed day.
