Isaiah 46:3b-4 NLT

I have cared for you since you were born. Yes, I carried you before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime–until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.

There’s a tremendous amount of comfort knowing my prodigal has been carried along all of their life by hands much bigger than mine. It started at conception. Just picture creator God bending over this little lump of cells stating their purpose and future. At birth, He was as joyous as the parents over this new little life.

He knows my prodigal’s innermost hurts and disappointments, things that I may not know. I can trust the prodigal to His care.

I also find it very liberating to know I don’t have to carry around a burden of concern and worry. The one who has carried my prodigal since conception won’t abandon them now. When they need sustaining God will sustain, when they need rescuing, God will rescue….even into their old age. Praise Him!

I pray you have put your prodigal into the hands of the one who will continue to carry them along and save them…

John 3:16-17 (NLT)

For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him.

On this Good Friday I hope your thoughts will be toward the cross….a place of forgiveness and hope. What a sacrifice was given that day for you and your prodigal! Because of God’s great love for us, if we believe, we are no longer condemned.

I pray the prodigal’s heart is awakened to the gift given them at the cross.

Isaiah 43:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

There are things our prodigals may be involved in that we never know about, but our minds imagine them! During those times, it’s comforting to know God has a good grip on them. It doesn’t mean they won’t come close to drowning or get singed a little but those bad choices won’t destroy them as long as God’s hand is securely on them. Placing my trust in Him allows me to sleep at night in peace.

Be at peace as you pray this over your prodigal today…
