Backslidden from God
“If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: If you remove wickedness far from your tent.” Job 22:23 (NIV)
If you’ve backslidden down to the deepest hole, you are still not too far down for the grace of God to lift you out. The Spirit of the Lord can reach you, lift you, and rebuild you. You can have a testimony of God’s saving grace that no other can have. The lost see where you have been and as they watch the transforming power of God in your life and long for that in theirs.
The grace of Christ will not leave you to struggle on your own as you aim to live for Him. Walking away from sin is not dependent on us exerting whatever discipline we think we can conjure up, but by resolutely walking toward the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let’s pray today for the convicting Spirit of God to work with those who have wondered far from God.
