And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years. Judges 6:1
Whenever a believer walks out of the grace of God, he positions himself for disgrace. This was the case with the children of Israel in our opening scripture and in other places in the Old Testament. Whenever they decided to follow other gods, God would abandon them and kings of other nations would attack and oppress them. It is then that they would come back to God, ask for mercy and God would fight for them. At a point, God got fed up with their way of living that He allowed them to be taken captive and into bondage by the kings of Babylon for about seventy years.
Beloved, the safest place to stay is in the grace of God. When you walk out of it, you walk out of God’s covering and anything can happen to you. Whenever a believer lives in habitual sin, he or she is walking out of the Grace of God. Some people misunderstand the subject of grace by saying that whenever they sin, Grace covers them. Wrong! Romans 6:1-2 says, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Few verses after says, “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” (Vs 6). What are you doing, living like someone that has not died to sin? If your old man is dead to sin, sin should therefore not have dominion over you. If your old man is still alive to sin, then you are not yet saved. Rush and get saved now because the way the world is going, anyone outside the Grace of God will be prey to circumstances and will be really dealt with. Be wise and stay in His Grace!
