Pressure of present problems lead to artificial devotion on Lord

The only spontaneous devotion towards God (which of course is not real since the devotion is only means) is the pressure of present problems. The artificial devotion shoots up spontaneously because God is only the final means for crossing such present difficulties. There is no need of any message or force for the devotee to maintain the devotion during the tenure of the present problems. But once the problem is solved and peace and happiness are attained, the human being forgets God completely after a very short time. This ungratefulness towards God is mainly based on the effect of ego because there is no possibility of keeping the self in the place of God in solving such problems.
