I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. – Psalms 119:176

Dearly beloved brethren, as you read of misfortunes that happened to some people in Bible days, don’t ever be self deceived, thinking, such a thing, can not happen to you, but rather in humility be watchful, to avert it. See what the Bible says.

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

When you read that Demas looked back and loved this present evil world. When you read of Lot’s wife that looked back and became a pillar of salt. When you read of Judas that betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver or David a man after the mind of God, who committed adultery and killed to cover it up.

What you should then do is to earnestly pray and besecch the Lord to keep you in particular to the end.

We are grateful to Jesus, the Shepherd and Bishop of our soul, who will always help us and restore our souls from sliding back.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

Psalms 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. – Psalms 119:176

Beloved brethren let us endeavour to reach out in intercession and follow up on any of our brethren, who have slided back from the faith.

James 5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

King David from personal experience, after surviving the travails of his adulterous escapades with Beersheba, pleaded with God, to keep him from sliding back again.

Psalms 119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

Psalms 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

Psalms 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

 

I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. – Psalms 119:176

Like king David, beloved brethren, let us watch and pray, lets we fall into temptations, according to the sayings of Christ.

Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. – Psalms 119:176
