To My Beloved,
I am the Father of the prodigal son. When my child rebels leaves home and wastes his inheritance in the pleasures of sin, I do not close the gate and instruct My angels to deny him access back. Instead, day and night, I will be found pacing, restless, thinking of him, waiting for him and looking out for his return.
I am the Good Shepherd of the lost sheep. When one of them strays away from Me, I will not content Myself with the 99 and forget the lost one. How can I rest, when this one is not home with Me?
I am the Owner of the lost coin. I may have 99 coins safe with Me, but My Heart goes out for the one lost one. And I will not rest until I find it.
I do not forget you and move on with those who seem ‘whole’, ‘put together’, and ‘perfect’ when you stray and are lost, blind and bound.
I am continually thinking of you, looking for you, waiting for you and sending out people to bring you back home.
The enemy will whisper to you that I don’t care anymore, that My attention is only on others and not on you in your struggle, but I see you, My Heart goes out for you and I am always interceding for you.
My Precious One, let nothing keep you away from Me. Condemnation lies. I love and pursue you continually.
Come, I will cleanse you.
Come, I will restore you.
Come, I will restore to you all you lost.
I bled for you.
I yearn for you.
John 10:16 (NLT)
16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.
