The Light Daily Devotional – Return to God
Focus: Return to God
WORD FOR TODAY
There is no time that is too late to return to God in absolute repentance. No matter how far you think you have drifted far away from God; His arm is ever waiting to receive you!
“And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20 NKJV)
When the prodigal son saw that he cannot continue to live in the mess he brought himself into; he turned to a direction towards the Father who received him joyfully. A similar fate awaits every man who repents genuinely. No man goes away from the father that will not mess up. To remain in the mess is the greatest tragedy that can happen to a man.
The devil may provide an arm to provide a temporal measure for your mess but you are only safe with the Lord and his arm is ever safe to receive you. No matter how great the gravity of what you have done against the will of God may appear to be, the fact remains that even though God chastises his people severely; He doesn’t give them over to death (Ps.118:18). His love for all mankind is that we should not perish but have everlasting life.
Don’t give up on God on the account of your shortcomings. He is ever waiting to accept you. He is very much interested in your homecoming! Repent and get things right with your creator!
+ Are you still roaming? When will you get it right with your Creator?
Prayer: Lord! No power of hell nor scheme of man will ever pluck me from your hands in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: No time is too late to return or get things right with God when grace is still available!
