OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 JULY 2023 BIBLE READING ISAIAH 1:4
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 JULY 2023 MESSAGE
Backsliding is the act of going back to the sin that was once repented of. The Bible says that
a backslider is not fit for the kingdom of God, as God does not delight in him/her at all.
The end of a backslider is usually not good because God isn’t involved in any area of his her life.
Satan uses different schemes such as bad association, Lukewarmness, prayerlessness, non-meditation on the word of God, unforgiveness, et cetera, to try to distance believers from God in order to make them backslide.
When a believer backslides, the sense of God’s presence leaves him/her and he/she becomes open to the manipulation of the devil.
As a child of God, I encourage you to do the things that please your Heavenly Father always and be wary of any form of backsliding.
When Samuel anointed David as king, God said that while people look at the outward appearance, He looks at?
a) Our motives
b) Our work done on earth
c) Our heart
d) Our attitude
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 1 JULY 2023 PRAYER POINT
Father, please uphold me with the right hand of your righteousness; help me never to backslide.
