The story of the prodigal son, was about a young man who was not satisfied to be in his father’s house where all of his needs were met.  He wanted more.  He believed the lie, that something more exciting was in store for him away from his father.

This is how we sometimes behave, even as Christians, we think that God is holding out on us, that there is something better out there than a close relationship with our Heavenly Father.  That the world has more excitement and fun to offer us than God, the Almighty does.

Brothers and sisters, this is not true. By thinking this way and then acting on it, whether we go as far away as the prodigal son or not, we are creating our own desperate circumstances.  Then we turn back to God, crying out for deliverance and forgiveness.

Fortunately, our Heavenly Father always hears our cries.  He is merciful and gracious to all.  But wouldn’t it have been far better to have avoided it in the first place?  So do not ever ever think Satan’s way is better than God’s way.  It is never.

2 Cor 6:18  says, “I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters.”
