Sign Of Backsliding




“Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” Psalm  51:12 

As Christians, we need to check our lives for the signs of backsliding constantly, because  the journey starts in little ways through self indulgence and carelessness in devotion and  interest in the things of God. When one suddenly realises that the joy of salvation that was once  enjoyed is gone, or the aura of peace that envelops a believer’s life is no more, praising and  worshipping God is becoming a trivial issue, or when one’s mind is constantly filled with  immoral and ungodly thoughts, or when one suddenly become comfortable in revealing clothes  and develop more interest in worldly things, these are all signs that such a heart is drifting away  from God.  

The Holy Spirit cannot be comfortable with someone who is frolicking with sin. The Holy  Spirit is a clean Spirit. When a Christian starts to see prayer as a burden and gets bored in  prayer sessions; when studying and reading the Bible becomes a struggle and fellowship with  brethren no longer matters, then there is something wrong that needs fixing. The book of  Revelation says “…You have left your first love, therefore remember where you have fallen,  repent and do the first works…” 


Father Lord, help me to deal with whatever is drawing me back from You in Jesus name. Amen
