Remember Your Relationship With God

1 At the Lord’s command, the whole community of Israel left the wilderness of Sin and moved from place to place. Eventually they camped at Rephidim, but there was no water there for the people to drink. So once more the people complained against Moses. “Give us water to drink!” they demanded. “Quiet!” Moses replied. “Why are you complaining against me? And why are you testing the Lord?” But tormented by thirst, they continued to argue with Moses. “Why did you bring us out of Egypt? Are you trying to kill us, our children, and our livestock with thirst?” ~ Exodus 17:1-3

Sin is our Egypt. When we first leave sin, we’re all excited and on fire for God. We’re the first ones to be at Church on Sunday morning. We read our Bible. We seek God. Everything is new and exciting. But then we hit a hiccup. Maybe we don’t spend as much time in prayer as we did. Maybe we miss a day or two of reading. Then all of a sudden, sin starts knocking at our door. Temptation after temptation is showing up all around us, and we start feeling those past desires start to build up again, and we start to desire the past that we left behind.

This is where the Israelites are at. They were so focused on the obstacle in their way; they were willing to go back to their slavery. That’s how we are. We get so caught up with the battle in front of us. The drought that we have to go through, that we forget the slavery that we’ve just escaped. We forget the relationship we just gained with God.

When droughts come, we have to remember our relationship with our God.

13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14

When we are craving our past, we have to remember that nothing is more satisfying than God.

You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.

Psalms 40:5

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Romans 8:18

Temptation and drought will come, but if we stay seeking God, then we will always be satisfied. We will never be thirsty, hungry, or unsatisfied again. Always remember that when we are in God, our cup runs over. He gives us everything we need and showers us with His blessings.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Psalms 23:5

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Remember Your Relationship With God.
