Outline for MFM Devotional Today 6 December 2022
The spirit of backsliding is on rampage and many are falling away by the day. So far, we have learnt some of the danger signals of backsliding. We will look at some more today. One danger signal of backsliding we should not ignore is unbelieving attitude. Without faith, it is impossible to please God and have a successful walk with Him. Faith is having courageous trust in God and His ability to do all things. That is why backsliding is synonymous with losing faith or falling away from faith. This will not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.
The Scriptures have instances of unbelief and condemn all of them. Jude 1:5 says, “The Lord, having saved the people out of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not” (NKJV). Similarly, concerning some disciples of Jesus, John 6:60, 66 reveal this, “Many disciples said, this is a hard saying; who can hear it? Many went back, and walked no more with him” (NKJV). Heed God’s admonition in Hebrews 3:12, “Beware lest any man spoil you through unbelief, in departing from the living God” (NKJV). Arise, and pray unbelief out of your life!
Another danger signal of backsliding is hardening one’s heart to the truth. The Bible says that you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Jesus is the Truth. The word of God is the Truth, but it is the truth you know, believe and live by that can set you free. When a person rejects the truth, he or she has chosen the path of falsehood and darkness. Such a person has ears that are dull of hearing and eyes that have been closed (Matthew 13:15). He or she will eventually backslide.
Double mindedness and wavering constitute another danger signal of backsliding. We have earlier established that you need faith to please God and that unbelief causes backsliding. The kind of faith that can help to prevent backsliding is unwavering faith. It is the kind of faith that Joshua and Caleb exhibited, not grasshopper kind of faith. The Bible says that a double minded man is unstable in his ways (James 1:6-8). Similarly, double-minded and wavering
