If someone is not moving forward they are standing still are moving backwards.This is not good for a christian. We should always be learning,studying God's Word, ways and commands.Learning to please Him more and more. How to be better lovers.We should always be moving forward but we can and do fall back,sometimes.When this happens we should repent and ask God to help us to move from this dry and barren spot.

For sure you are not going anywhere. Therefore, you might as well go back.

I can't speak for everyone but I'm not going backwards in Christ. I am only moving forward in him. Alot of people get comfortable in Christ and don't want to move closer to him, or forward. And then they wonder why others are getting blessed more than they are. Christ will bless those who do for him. If one is slack in serving him and not trying to get closer to him, he won't bless them much.

if we are stagnant we are in a spiritual position to backslide.its easy to arrive at a stagnant point.remember abraham and sarah waiting all those years for issac?all of us are never content to wait upon God,we want everything done yesterday.its taken God nearly forty years to get me to the point where I think of him daily,and his word.

part2, thing is when we grow to that point we realize how awesome God is and how really unimportant all the issues of the flesh are.yes its hard to be ill,hard to have needs,hard to feel lijke we are all alone and everyone around us is selfish, and God isn,t listening.but our lives are as a puff of smoke ,here today gone tommorrow.and when we have chosen jesus we will be with him for ETERNITY.thank God for that.

Only you can answer that. If your sins have increased and you are enamoured with the world and its lusts, there might be trouble (repent). If this is a season where you are not feeling Gods presence but being tried in faith, I think we've all experienced that. Stagnant doesn't mean backwards but is a step before foward or backward. The Bible says draw close to God and He will draw close to you. Begin to seek and call out to Him. Read,Pray and Praise. You will be fine. I will pray for you John. Ask others.

Everyone knows that you cannot work to get saved. But I am saying, once you are saved by the Blood of Christ, He expects you to work. My goodness the devil and his people are out working. All God needs is a few good men and women. The devil has armies. All God needs is a few good people who are willing to go forward for their Savior. Good day++

Read the Word, pray, fast and be available to help others in the Lord and one's relationship with God will grow.

You don't always see your own progress. Sometimes you need to grow into the grace He has given you, or level He has brought you.

I think that anyone In Christ, will start
growing, like Jesus who grew and became strong in spirit(Lk 2:40) and its the desire of the pure milk of the Word of God that hepls us to grow.(1Pet 2:2) Brian 6693

Standing still but not going backwards. Sometimes we must stop along the way of serving God so we can hear what he wants to say to us and show us where He wants us to go so that we may grow. Use this time to study the Word every day,not just read,but read and pray, ask God what He wants you to know of Him. Also have a praise service all by yourself to draw nearer to God for He in habits the praise of His people. Seek more of the Lord you can never be stagnant in Him.
