Returning to God
“I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them.” Hosea 14:4 (NIV)
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 life. We may encourage them, but only the Spirit can bring conviction and break a stubborn heart into returning to the awaiting love of God.
We can return to the Lord and find revival for our faith no matter how stale our spiritual condition has become. God welcomes us back with His love and will freely heal our waywardness and restore our relationship with Him.
Let’s pray today for those we know and love who are far from the God they once followed.
