Returning to God
“I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them.” Hosea 14:4 (ESV)
When one rejects and runs from God, our calling is to pray the Spirit of God after them to bring them back. A backslidden soul can find fellowship again with the Lord through the power and working of the Spirit upon their wayward heart. We may encourage them, but only the Spirit can convict and break the stubborn soul into returning to the awaiting love of God.
Let’s pray today for those we know and love who are far from the God they once followed.
