forgetting what you know


devotional post # 2138

Hosea 13:4-6

Hos 13:4 But I am Yahveh your God from the land of Egypt; you are to admit knowing no God but me, and besides me there is no savior.
Hos 13:5 It was I who admitted knowing you in the desert, in the land of drought;
Hos 13:6 but when they had eaten in the pasture, they became full, they were filled, and their heart was lifted up; for this reason they forgot me.

forgetting what you know

The Israelites had admitted knowing God because he saved them from bondage in Egypt, and starvation in the desert. But when they got settled in the promised land, their full bellies caused them to forget what they knew — and who knew them.

LORD, may we always remember who saved us, and who chose to love us.
