Check Out Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said:
"There are many reasons why people backslide. Probably, they have their eyes on things that are outside the Will of God for their lives.
The first thing you need to do is to set your eyes on the Lord and give Him your attention. The Bible says, "My son give me your heart and let your eyes observe my ways".
In the book of Mark 4:1-23, the story of the sower was shared. In verse 18 of that scripture, you will find out that the sower sowed some of his seed on the thorny soil and it did not germinate because the hearers were overtaken by the cares of this life, the deciet of riches and the lust for other things. The reason the Word of God is unproductive in your life is because you are receiving it among thorns and this is not the will of God for your life.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your heart does not get carried away with the Issues of this life and Luke 21:34 says this very clearly. In the book of Proverbs, God asks us to guard our heart with all diligence, for out of it comes the issues of life.
God wants you to remain steadfast in service to him because the Lord is coming back again."
