“There is hope for your future, declares the Lord, and your children shall come back to their own country.” Jeremiah 31:17 (ESV)
Moms and Dads who are grieved by their children’s waywardness can find hope in God’s promises. Like the Israelite’s, whose captivity in Babylon brought about God’s promise of return, so can your home and its captivity in today’s spiritual Babylon, find a promise of return. Don’t give up on them, don’t beat yourself up with guilt, just keep praying in the promises of God that they will return.
Let’s pray today that our prodigals will be convicted by the Spirit of God to return to Calvary.
