I Will Arise

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father; I have sinned against heaven and before thee

– Luke 15:18

Life is about choices everyday. We make decisions and take responsibilities each day. Yesterday’s decision is today’s reality, and your ability to make the right decisions per time makes you a responsible person. The prodigal son came to a point where he needed to make a life changing decision, and Bible records that, “And when he came to himself, he said…” – Luke 15:17b. This phrase suggests him coming to terms with his present predicament. He didn’t just come to his senses, but took a decision and followed it up by taking responsibility. There was no shifting of blames for his condition, no making of baseless excuses, but he rather said to himself, “I will arise…”, and he did.

Have you fallen so low that it looks like there is no hope of rising? Take a cue from the prodigal son, and arise (Proverbs 24:16). God is saying to you today, ‘Arise from that shame’, ‘Arise from that defeat’, ‘Arise from that mess’ and so forth. In the words of a man who had firsthand experience of life’s troubles, “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch  thereof will not cease” – Job 14:7. If there is such hope for a tree stump, much more, there is hope for you. Arise!

PRAYER: FATHER, thank You for past victories in my most trying times. I pray that You will grant me grace to take responsibility and make the right decisions daily in Jesus Name!
