Don’t wait on the right circumstances to do the right thing. How is it to your credit if you only follow God when it’s convenient? Only when you want, and in ways that you set?

If our hard is the absence of a good God, then how can anyone walk in faith? No, follow God always.

Consider what Moses said to the Israelites before they entered the Promised Land,

Jeshurun grew fat and kicked;
filled with food, they became heavy and sleek.
They abandoned the God who made them
and rejected the Rock their Savior.
They made him jealous with their foreign gods
and angered him with their detestable idols.
They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God–
gods they had not known,
gods that recently appeared,
gods your ancestors did not fear.
You deserted the Rock, who fathered you;
you forgot the God who gave you birth.
– Deuteronomy 32:15-18

Because God had shielded, guarded, carried, fed, nourished, and led the Israelites for forty years in the desert, Moses pled with them not to forget Him when they entered the land God was giving them. In other words, to remember His commands, to walk uprightly, not to get fat, lazy, and comfortable from what surrounds and forget the God whom they follow.

Maybe following God in the hard times is practice for following Him when it’s easy.

Rain more than this day’s bread/And I may say I’m God instead/Take all my crumbs away/And I may rob and wound your name… God I ask only for enough/O enough/God, only/Just enough
