“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 hope on your children, don’t beat yourself up with guilt regarding what you didn’t say or do, just keep praying in the promises of God that they will return. Most of all, don’t give up on God’s ability to save.
Let’s pray today that our prodigals will be convicted by the Spirit of God to return to Calvary.
