Job 21:13-14, “They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of they ways. What is the Almighty that we should serve him?”
How sad it is that people do not think they need God because life is going well for them. Why is that lower class people seem to be more receptive to the Gospel and the things of God than those in the middle and upper class? I believe that is is the fact that those in the lower class don’t “have it all.” They know that they need help. Those in the middle and upper class think they have everything they need. Their thinking is very clouded They do not believe that they need God in their life.
However, they could not be more wrong, and one day they will learn. When life is going good, we ought to be as close to God as we would be if life was going bad. We should treat God as our Best Friend, not a 911 call for our emergencies. My prayer is that I will stay close to God in not only the bad times but also in the good times. I never want to tell God with either my words or actions to depart from me.
