Perhaps there is no loneliness quite so bitter as the loneliness of a backslidden Christian.
Do you need to be restored?
Yet there is forgiveness for you. As you confess and forsake your sins, your fellowship with Christ will be restored. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
(Adapted from “The Despair of Loneliness” in the February 2017 issue of Decision magazine)
Dear Lord, please keep me mindful if I begin to lose my way. Give me a deep longing to be restored into a right relationship with You. I am eternally grateful that regardless of how far I fall away from You, I am never out of Your reach. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
