Sometimes it takes a fall to correct the soul...
“The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul...”
Ever notice how you can be heavily convicted of something and how with time and a few repetitions of that action it doesn't seem to carry the same weight? The conviction loses its sting and the choice justifies itself, the actions rationalize themselves and the conviction no longer stands.
Could it be God will allow us to fall in an area where we have been wandering off to deeply convict us that we have strayed and lead us to repentance?
It might be temptation your facing and the conviction is a beautiful reminder of the way out? It might not be sin but it might be something keeping you from experiencing all God has for you. Why settle for anything less then His best?
Easy way out: listen to the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit. Conviction is there to help correct you not condemn you, it simply there to draw you back into His presence.
Hard way: fall down and realize this is not the way intended Your Heavenly Father intended you to walk. But He is loving and still offers a way back, through repentance.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”-Psalms 51:10
Don't fall but if you do fall into the arms of Jesus...let Him revive your soul!
