When you come to yourself!

“And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!” Luke 15:17

Years ago, while sitting in a mental hospital, I wondered, “How in the world did I get here?!” My life had sunk so low that I had forgotten who I was. I had forgotten why I was here. But Jesus met me in that place and He helped me come to myself.

My sister and friend, you may be wondering, “How did I get here? How did I get in this mess of a situation? How did I let my life get so out of control?” Maybe you don’t recognize yourself anymore and have forgotten who you are and why you are here. But Jesus will help you like He helped me. He will stoop down and will help you come to yourself. He will break the power of Satan’s lies over you and will cause His truth to penetrate through to your heart until you are reminded of who you are. He will help you remember that you have a heavenly Father who loves you, you have a family in Christ that cares, and you have a divine purpose for why you are here. When you truly come to yourself, you are reminded of who you are and all of the lies of the enemy are shattered!

The prodigal son remembered as he came to himself, and he went straightway to his father. I pray you will do the same. I pray you go straightway to your Father. He will welcome you with open arms. He will put a ring on your finger, a crown on your head and a robe on your back. He will remove your old filthy garments, and robe you in garments fitting for a daughter of the King!

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to me and for meeting me right where I am. Only you can help me come to myself. Help me God! Deliver me from this place I’m in and set me on a firm foundation in you. No matter what I go through, help me run to you and receive your loving reminder of who I am. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Luke 15:11-32)
