Psalm 25:8-10 NLT

The Lord is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them His way. The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep His covenant and obey His demands.

The Lord is always ready to lead if we will defer to Him instead of blindly going our own way. Can I leave room in my plans for a change of direction, if He so desires? Humility and obedience are key; recognizing it’s not our plans that give us success, but His unfailing love and faithfulness.

Let’s pray the prodigal will recognize God’s desire to lead them and welcome it. May they be humble as they do what’s right in His eyes and realize His faithfulness and love as doors open before them on a “proper” path.

Psalm 25:8-10 NLT

Ephesians 6:12-13

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground and after you have done everything, to stand.

We need to recognize that our battle is not with our co-workers, our spouse, our family; not flesh and blood… the battle is against spiritual forces of evil. The mere fact that we are believers in Christ, will bring on attacks of the enemy in all areas of our life. The armor of God (belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet fitted with the gospel, shield of faith, helmet of salvation) is the only way to stand and remain standing when we’ve tried everything else.

We should be praying the armor of God over our prodigals routinely. I pray they will spiritually dress themselves in His armor, take up their shield and stand their ground!

Ephesians 6:12-13

Therefore, ________,  put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground and after you have done everything, to stand.
