COME TO YOURSELF

‘And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!’ – Luke 15 vs 17

Hello Dearly Beloved in the Precious LORD JESUS, how has your week been? I trust that the LORD has been so Gracious to you. The Spirit of the LORD has yet again led me to write this inspiring article which has the potent ability to restore every believer currently in the cackles of fear and condemnation towards God. Do that your hurting friend a favor by sharing this piece of exhortation with him or her and restore back a life to God. God Bless you even as you Read. AMEN.

Our opening scripture is the story/parable of the Prodigal Son who requested of his Father all his inheritance, and spent them all on riotous living and later began to be in want. Now, a time came in his life where he could no more take the sufferings anymore, and lets here what he said again;

‘And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!’ – Luke 15 vs 17 {KJV}

It says, When he came to himself! That’s the word, the Key Word in this teaching. This young man came to himself, he came to the realization that his Father has plenteous of food and the servants of the Father have over and above for themselves, and he stays there suffering.

To come to yourself means to come to a sudden realization of fact! He suddenly realized that his Dad is so rich and has more than enough to take care of him even though he has messed up big time. – Selah

Beloved, the LORD began to talk to me in Prayer that there are many of HIS children who as a result of some sin (such as sexual sins, murders and others), they have lost confidence before HIM, such as they cannot even seek HIS face anymore in prayers, they are sore afraid and condemned in their consciences. Hence, HE sent me with HIS Word which I share with you right now. You have to come to yourself my beloved! You have to come to the realization that your Heavenly Father has so much (everlasting) mercies to spare on you. Yes, you have to come to yourself about this! – Selah

‘It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.’ – Lamentations 3 vs 22 – 23 {KING JAMES VERSION}

You see that? It says HIS mercies are new every morning, and it also says ‘Great is thy faithfulness’. In other words, HIS commitment towards renewing HIS mercies on us every day is GREAT. – Selah. He is faithful (Never fails) at that. Hallelujah!

So this young man realized that. And what’s the next Rhema we see in that Parable?

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. – Luke 15 vs 18 – 19 {KING JAMES VERSION}

You get something from that? He said, I will arise and go to my Father. So the next thing we see from that Parable is APPROACHING GOD BOLDLY.

This may be your condition right now, whereby you lack boldness in coming towards God, either by Prayer or in your Church Assembly meetings, you just don’t wanna go for a meeting because you have fret towards God. But what do you see here? The young man after coming to himself (Realizing the Great mercies of his Father), took the step of approaching HIM. You have to know that there is a difference between knowing your Father is merciful and approaching your Father because you know HE is merciful. The second is called FAITH. So approaching God boldly is an act of Faith in HIS Word that HE is merciful and that HE will hear you. - Selah

 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].’ – Hebrews 4 vs 16 {AMPLIFIED BIBLE}

You see that? Now, we are informed from this passage that when we come to God fearlessly, confidently, and boldly, we will receive mercy for our failures. Waow! Thank God for this scripture, what a Hope that emanates from it. Therefore, if the WORD of God is true, let us like that Prodigal son, express Faith by coming to God fearlessly, confidently, and boldly, not because we are bold towards God, no, but because the WORD says we should be. There is no harm doing the WORD! – Selah

Now, there is something else I want to draw your attention to in that story of the Prodigal son;

‘I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. – Luke 15 vs 18 – 19 {KING JAMES VERSION}

You observe what the young man said to himself? He said that he was no more worthy to be called his Father’s son. That’s the same feeling you might be having right now concerning yourself as a result of your numerous sins. But you know what, there is enough mercy for every of your failures every day. From where we read in Lamentations 3 vs 22 - 23, it says that HIS mercies are new every morning. Hallelujah!

Therefore Child of God, be encouraged, come to yourself, further it by approaching God fearlessly as you have Read, and you know what the result of that will be?

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.’ – Luke 15 vs 20 {KJV}

Oooo, what Love! It says, And he arose! In other words, when you arise, when you take that bold step to God in prayers, He will welcome you, and the end of it will be PEACE, PEACE, PEACE; JOY, JOY, JOY! Praise God forever more.

God is true to HIS Word, HIS mercies never comes to an end!

God Bless You.
