Jeremiah 14:7 ” Although our sins testify against us, O Lord, do something for the sake of Your Name. For our backsliding is great; we have sinned against You.”

You don’t hear the word backsliding used much anymore. Backsliding is a moral lapse of judgment and disobedience…a wayward decision, not always openly rebellious, but still falling short of God’s standard. Backsliding can be filled with arrogance such as Isaiah wrote, “The look on their faces testifies against them: they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it.” But regardless of how subtle or brash the backsliding is…it’s still sin, and all misdeeds have consequences. But it’s at that point that we must repent and ask God for forgiveness…and pray, “Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of Your Name; deliver us and forgive our sins for Your Name sake.” (Psalm 79:9)
