It just happens. Before we know it, not purposely, we slip, we step away from our Lord. We forget the wonder of that first relationship. The wonder of seeing a Loving Savior. The wonder of realizing He paid the price of our deep, dark, and dirty sins. We forget the message which pierced our hearts. We forget the Words of God which seemed to jump off the page right into our heart and soul the day, the night, the morning we first believed. Remember the wonder when you realized that Jesus did it ALL just for you? There was rejoicing and a celebration! The light came in and the darkness fled away!
Are you in that place today where the wonder is gone? Where the weight that once was lifted now seems to rest once again on your soul. Are you in that place, like the Prodigal Son, where you are about to “come to your senses” and remember… the wonder. O beloved of the Father, he stands looking down that road, longing for His beloved one to appear on the horizon, longing to receive you back, to embrace you once again with His loving arms. He will run to meet you! Can you see Him? Will you come home?
If that is you, then consider praying this prayer: Lord Jesus, I’ve walked away. I have sinned and come to you now confessing and repenting of my sins with all my heart. Forgive my sins of failure and rebellion. Restore me. I come again to worship You in the wonder of who you are. Wash me clean in Your precious blood from all that offends You. Thank You for having made me a new creation in Your righteousness and holiness, so I can once again love You and serve You with all my heart. In Your precious Name I pray, Amen.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
See the wonder once again today!
