How Do You Know If You Are Complacent?

I read this last night in my quiet time and it took my breath away.

Zephaniah 1:12 At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those
who are complacent, who are like wine left on its dregs, who think, 'The LORD
will do nothing, either good or bad.'

God's people are complacent when they assume God won't do anything. That's not the normal definition of complacency I had been using for myself and others. But God says that expecting him to do nothing is deserving of judgment. What are you expecting God to do?
