Drifting Spiritually. November 19 2019.
“ So rend your heart and not your garments; return to the Lord your God. For He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm.” Joel 2:13. NKJV.
Have you experienced all the joys and blessings of being called God’s child? Have you drifted away and maybe lost your enthusiasm and commitment for being part of His family? You may not know how it happened but you need to confess that you have drifted in your spiritual life. Pay attention to the state of your soul and keep your eyes on Him.
Know that there is nothing more important in life than your relationship with God. He turns darkness into light; He forgives me from my sin and offers me new life; he welcomes me with open arms, even after I have wandered away from home and Him.
Reaffirm your love for Him. Come to Him humbly. Your faith may feel weak but bring your praise and worship. Ask Him to do a brand new work in your Harry and life. Even when you don’t feel an emotional confirmation, confidently affirm that you are rekindling the flame of faith inside of you. Just like He did with the prodigal son, you forgive me and embrace me and include me in Your family.
“ We must pay careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” Hebrews 2:1. NIV.
Thomas A Kempis said, “ A life without a purpose is languid, drifting thing. Every day we ought to renew our purpose, saying to ourselves; This day let us make a sound beginning for what we have hitherto done is naught.”
🙏. Father God, I confess that I have been slipping spiritually. Help me to return humbly before You and confess my sins. I reaffirm my faith and love for You. In the precious name of Jesus I pray.
