Job 12:10 – In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
There are things in our lives that we believe will never be taken from us. And we become complacent. Then we wake up one morning and they’re gone.
According to elitedaily.com in their article, “Why Being Complacent Will Ruin Your Life,” one of the worst areas where complacency really takes its toll is in our relationships. Just as I shared above all it takes is a bad argument to separate the best of friends. Yet, all it takes is being willing to go beyond the argument and seek forgiveness to renew your friendships instead of losing them. Also, being complacent at your job can get you stuck in a rut and cause you to never obtain a better job. It can cause you to stop trying harder and seeking a better position. Another area of complacency is our health. We can believe we’ll always be healthy and ignore signs that we are sick. Just as I said above that friend of yours who has cancer may have caught it in time if they had been paying attention to the signs instead of believing it could never touch them.
Life is in the hand of God and it is he who gives us breath, whether it’s wearing a mask or taking our final breath, it is God who holds our life in his hands.
