Coming Back

A good thing to do as life goes on is to come back to ourselves analyze what we are doing. You could be going so fast yet making no progress or bearing fruits. You could be still be doing a good thing and yet making no progress. Progress is so important in your journey. Don't cheat to yourself keep it a 100 and analyze your journey to see what you are becoming and making. I don't believe it’s a good position to get comfortable with everything in your life. We are a work in progress nobody has arrived yet. There is still a lot that you can do.

The prodigal son was moving so fast, with money and a lot of pleasure but he was making no progress. Ouch! This is not a good place to be, having pleasure; having what you want in life yet in your spirit and soul you are breaking.

When things are not working out in your life, come back to yourself. You don't need more money or a better man so that you get back on track but a new attitude and mindset. (You know this kinda things that people say....I wish I had a lot of money things would be okay now, I wish I had a better man, I know I will be okay when I get the new job...) 

The prodigal son did something wise and very important.
 (Luke 15:17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death)
 The bible says he came back to his senses. A good thing to do when things are not working out, in your relationship, life, job, family is always come back to yourself. The word says he asked Himself, how many people are in my father’s place enjoying… 
The question that you ask yourself in the midst of darkness is always important. Come back to yourself and ask yourself the right question.
(Luke 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.....) Yes you have to rise up, you will have to stretch and come out from the comfort zone. See the Father doesn't get back to you but you get back to the Father. Why? Our Father makes no mistake but we do. It is your job to rise and get back to the Father. Just like the Prodigal son repenting your sins is very important when you are getting back. When we don't repent we keep repeating! To repent means to know your mistake, ask for forgiveness and stop doing it.

At first the Prodigal son only new His father as a provider but after things happened and he came to himself he saw his father in a different view. Challenges are good; they keep us going back to our Father. They help us understand Him better

Never sit on the sideline waiting for someone to come and rescue you. Refuse to sit on the fence; get back on track, On His word. God does not respond to our self-pity feelings, out worry. God responds to faith and His word. Let Him found you standing on the word and not your feelings and fear. The quicker you get off the road of pity party and get to agree with His word, the better for you. It doesn't matter what is happening but what you choose to do, the attitude you pick and what you believe it matters the most.

God is your only refuge, not much money, not a better man, not a better job, not a bigger house, but God Alone.
You can absolutely depend fully on His integrity. Don’t forget to always keep coming back
