How to cure spiritual stagnation

February 28, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;

            his mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning;

            great is your faithfulness.

–Lamentations 3:22-23

Have you ever noticed in the Christian life that there’s always the next step of dedication? We always strive to love more, to learn more, and to grow beyond what we’ve been. The Christian life is a series of new beginnings.

The most exciting part about being a believer in Jesus Christ is the next chapter, the next day, and the next open door that we have. And when it comes to the next step of our growth, we must be aware of the peril of the plateau… of becoming stagnant and still, rather than moving forward for the cause of Christ.

Perhaps as you look at your own life today, you would have to say you’ve plateaued spiritually. Maybe you’ve become sort of laissez faire in your spiritual life and you need to take the next step by renewing your commitment to Jesus Christ. 

In the Christian life, it’s never too late for a new beginning. So whether you’ve been in a holding pattern for days, months or even years, start new and afresh this day. Remember God’s faithfulness in your life, recommit yourself to growing in His grace, and experience a whole new fullness of life!

WHEN YOU FEEL SPIRITUALLY STAGNANT, RECOMMIT YOURSELF TO GOD’S PURPOSES, REMEMBER HIS FAITHFULNESS, AND EXPERIENCE HIS MERCIES ANEW EVERY DAY!
