amos has always been very quick to look to anyone who will take care of his needs as being someone who will ALWAYS be able to take care of his needs... when only mommy & daddy should be that. as an orphan, he got so used to looking out for himself & he learned to rely on anyone who would give him attention because he was starving for it. he thinks what he needs is just someone/anyone to feed him, change him or give him a toy, but he needs love & care from a mommy & daddy that won't change & pass him off to someone else.
so it is with us... as "orphans" (before the Lord rescued us & made us His children) we fulfilled our need for the Lord with lesser caregivers, lesser things that would not remain. now that we are His it is easy to fall back to that & forget what we have in our Savior. we look to other things/people to care for us & fulfill us.
i have taken such offense to amos looking to others for care & love & i get annoyed with him when he does, but my Father never becomes angry when i look to other things. He remains faithful. He is so good & gracious to us, His children! hallelujah! He does not change!
"if we are faithless, He remains faithful." 2 timothy 2:13
