Healed Backsliders

Hosea 14:4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
         Dear Saints, these ought to be comforting words to all of us. We have all made resolutions to do better, to pray more, to read our Bibles more, to resist various temptations, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh or the pride of life, only to find ourselves sliding right back where we were when we made the resolution.

         Some of these backslidings have been small, others large. Whether your slide was short or long, the Lord is there to catch you. He stops the slide. He heals the slider. He turns away His anger and He loves you freely. What grand grace from our gracious God!
