Have you ever found yourself turning to the Lord when you need something from Him, then going along your merry way barely thinking of Him when things are going well? If so, you’re not alone. Consider the brother of Jared in this chapter. He constantly sought the Lord’s direction while travelling in the wilderness in search of a promised land. But once they stopped in a place they called Moriancumer, they began to put down roots (v. 13). Four years later, the Lord came to the brother of Jared and spoke to him from a cloud for three hours. Part, if not all of this conversation consisted in the Lord’s chastising the brother of Jared for failing to call upon Him. Clearly our Heavenly Father desires our company regularly, like any good friend. May we remember that, and call upon Him in good times as well as bad ones.
