Beware of Complacency

How long will you lie there, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, 11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man. ~ Proverbs 6:9-11

When we stop desiring the things of God, and we stop seeking Him, we become complacent in our walk with God. When we become complacent with God, we stop moving forward. If we aren’t running the race set before us, then we’ll never reach the finish line. We’ll never find our Promised Land. We’ll fall asleep right where we stand and eventually die of hunger and thirst.

This is where a lot of us are. We’ve slowly stopped reading our Bible. We’ve slowly stopped praying. We’ve slowly become distant from God without even realizing it. We don’t have forever to get it right. We only have today; tomorrow is promised to no one. We have to constantly check our spiritual temperature lest we fall asleep, allowing poverty and want to sneak up on us like an armed robber.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Beware of Complacency.

  1. Ezekial 1:12 and they went everyone straight forward, where ever the Spirit was about to go, they went and they turned not when they went.
