Rest for Backsliders
“For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” But you were unwilling” Isaiah 30:15 (ESV)
Backsliding may put us back in control of our life, but it is when the Spirit of God brings rest that we have life. When a person stops church activities and gatherings by removing themselves from a Christ-following fellowship, we should pray the Spirit out to get them and cause them in their own works to stop stepping back, rest in Christ, and accept His forgiveness again and as often as necessary.
Let’s pray today that with the power of God’s Spirit we will trust and return to Him again and again.
