WHY PEOPLE BACKSLIDE: EVIL ASSOCIATIONS
The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself. (Proverbs 14:14)
People backslide because of evil association, i.e when they mix with the wrong crowd. No matter how anointed you are, when you associate with evil people, you are heading to backslide. Any association that will rub you off heaven is not worth it. In 1 Kings 11:1-4, the Bible said, "Solomon clave unto these in love and his wives tuned his heart away from God".
Solomon backslide because of evil women. Do you think Solomon woke up one day and decided to serve idols? No. It was his association with his wives. They gradually convinced him to go serve their strange gods with them.
They would say things to King Solomon like, "I know you are born again but if you truly love me. Go with me to prove your love for me"
Wrong friends make people backslide.
Even in the church it is not everybody who says he is a Christian that is. There are people in the church, if you make friends with them they will teach you how to gossip and how to live in sin. Every time you sit with them, they gossip about everything people wear and do. Run from them because you are on the way to backsliding. They will lead you out of the faith, they will discourage you until you backslide, they tell you about the faults of everybody including what they saw and what they did not see. The terrible thing is, these kinds of people have backslidden but they stay to destroy and discourage you. Beware of such friends even in the house of God.
When you feel you are always correct and every other person is wrong; you know better than everyone else and nobody can correct/help you, you are on your way to backsliding.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: O Lord I call on you today to order my steps towards persons with the fear of God that will not lead me into sin in the name of Jesus. I command any person planted by the devil to be an agent to cause to backslide to be remove from my life now in the name of Jesus. By the blood of Jesus I attract those that will be a blessing to me and a source of encourage to me in the Christian race.

WORDS OF WISDOM: Do not make friends with people, who will destroy your faith, you will lose Christ.
