Topic: I WILL ARISE …part 9.
Text: Luke 15:20-23.
20: So he got up and came to his [own] father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity and tenderness [for him]; and he ran and embraced him and kissed him [fervently].
21: And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son [I no longer deserve to be recognized as a son of yours]!
22: But the father said to his bond servants, Bring quickly the best robe (the festive robe of honor) and put it on him; and give him a ring for his hand and sandals for his feet.
23: And bring out that [wheat-]fattened calf and kill it; and let us revel and feast and be happy and make merry.
If you have been following PVD you will agree with me that God has been gracious to us through this medium by sending his word to us . Anytime God wants to punish a set, group or class of people he takes his word far from them. Jesus said in John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Our lives can only be transformed by his word. I will round off this series in part 10, I am already getting inspiration for a series tagged ‘ HELP SERIES ‘, it is going to liberate lives and destinies. That will be coming up after 20 DAYS OF SPECTACULAR ACTS.
The focus here is the CELEBRATION OF THE PRODIGAL SON. The dictionary meaning for the word ‘ prodigal ‘ is a recklessly extravagant person. Such a person deserves no celebration, yet he was celebrated.
The prodigal son was not expecting so much from his father, since he has taken a portion of his inheritance, hear his request, ‘ make me as one of your hired servants ‘, I see him saying, ‘ I have lost sonship, what is left for me now is servanthood, my inheritance has been wasted, I have wasted a life time fortune ‘, and that was his true state, but his father, who must have been saying, ‘ the day I set my eyes on my son again the whole community will know that he is back ‘.
The prodigal son got more than he wanted, take a look at verse 22 in Amplified version
But the father said to his bond servants, Bring quickly the best robe (the festive robe of honor) and put it on him. The man called the bond servants, he could have said ‘ from today, this guy will be staying with you ‘, rather he said, ‘ bring quickly the festive robe of honor ‘, can I shock you? That is what God is going to put on you, ‘ a robe of honor ‘. This guy deserves NO HONOR, it is possible that you know that you also deserve NO HONOR, but God is not looking for qualifications here, it is not by MERIT but by MERCY.
When challenges draw a man to God, and he comes praying seeking the face of God continually, God don’t just make him overcome his challenges, he does something beyond his expectations.
Saul was looking for his father sheep when he visited Samuel and he was confirmed the first king of Isreal in 1 Samuel 9.
God is not just going to solve the problem, he will launch you to your realm of celebration. Seeking God brings a lot of good fortune. I am talking from experience.
No matter what had happened in your life there is a ROBE OF HONOUR prepared for you, just seek him. God bless you.
* I receive my robe of honour in Jesus name.
