There is healing in the very presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. Continue to pray and fellowship with Him, and let Him be your strength. Continue to ask Him for a revelation of the Father's will for your life. Continue to soak up the nourishment of the Scriptures, growing in your understanding of the Lord and of His love for you. As you praise Jesus, focus on Who He is and all that He is to you. Hold on to Him and He will abide with you, keep you in perfect peace, and
bring healing to your entire being. We are so glad to learn that you have rededicated your life to the Lord. You can be certain that God is delighted with your decision because His love for you is unwavering and enduring. He is our deeply caring Heavenly Father. If we stray from Him in small ways or large, He joyfully welcomes us back to Him.
You can see the depth of God's love for you in that He lovingly called for you to return to Him. Jesus once told a parable about the shepherd who went out searching for one of his sheep that had gone astray (Luke 15:3-7). Another time Jesus said, "Look! I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone listens to my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me" (Rev. 3:20, ISV). Also, you can rest in the assurance of God's forgiveness for you.
Whatever you may have done wrong, He will forgive you when you confess it to Him. You can hold to the promise that if "we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9, ESV). Don't let yourself continue to feel guilty over something He has already forgiven. Instead, receive the peace and healing He has for your heart.
Now that you have come back to the Lord, be sure to do all you can to strengthen your walk with Him. As you know, prayer is not only beneficial to your spiritual health, it is essential to it. A sample prayer that may be good at this time is what King David prayed after he had sinned: "Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me" (Psalm 51:10, NLT).
Devote some time especially for prayer every day. Start by worshipping the Lord. Then let Him speak to your heart and reveal to you any unconfessed sins. Listen for His wisdom and guidance for your life. Ask the Lord for whatever needs you may have.
Also, spend time reading the Bible daily. Let the Spirit of God speak to you through His Word. Think about how it applies to your life. God's promises will encourage you and the teachings of our Lord will guide you. A good place to start reading is Luke chapter fifteen, which has the inspiring parables of the lost sheep, lost coin, and the prodigal son.
It is also important for you to gather together frequently with other
Christians. When you meet with other believers, they can encourage you and support you. You will also be able to encourage them by sharing how God brought you back to Him! There will also be opportunities for you to exercise the gifts God has given you to bless others.
Find a place to be with other Christians who are loving, accepting, and
challenging-people who will help you grow. Make sure that the group believes the Bible is God's Word. Ask God to lead you to the right place. You could attend services in a regular church building or in a house church. Make sure, though, that you develop personal relationships with others, such as in a home group or a Bible study.
Yours in Christ,
"The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?"Psalm 27:1
