James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows.

For the prodigal, everything may seem to be shifting constantly… who they can trust, what tomorrow may look like, feelings, emotions, etc. Their Heavenly Father is one of steadfast love that can be counted on for stability in uncertain times. He will not change! Good and perfect gifts are His to give and He delights in doing so.

What great news for a prodigal who may be grasping for anything that will be stable and needs something positive to happen today. Let’s pray if they haven’t already, they begin discovering these truths about God right now, on this very day!

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.

I’ve read that we have misrepresented this verse. We have made it about salvation when this letter was to the church in Laodicea. Commentaries have written that it is actually about being ready. Christ’s coming will be like a sudden knock at the door! (James 5:9 “The judge is standing at the door”) Much like the 10 virgins of Matt. 25 (the door was shut to the 5 foolish ones because they were not prepared) today’s church could see it happen to them as well. If we remain watchful and ready for His return, which will happen quickly, the door will be opened to us and we will join him at the marriage supper of the Lamb…what a joyful day that will be!

My prayer for the prodigal is that they are ready, recognize the Lord’s knocking on the door and open that door to His activity in their life.

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If ________ hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him/her, and he/she with me.
