So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Sometimes we can pray, step back and watch God work. Most of the time, though, we are asked to enter the battle and He promises to be alongside, upholding and strengthening us. We have been asked to go to war for those we love. It’s a battle for their hearts and minds and it can seem to go on for a long time. Nothing gives a child of God more confidence, though, than knowing the creator of the universe is on their side as they step out, in His strength, and go into battle.
I pray the prodigal has been seeing opportunities to put God’s Word to the test in their lives and discovering, what He says He will do, He will do. May they feel His strength and be fearless.
