THE COURAGE TO REPENT
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Monday, 14th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“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!”

It is impossible to hold guilt or unforgiveness in your heart and still have a walk with God at the same time. This is because both guilt and unforgiveness eat up your confidence before God, making you withdraw further and further away from His Grace into condemnation.
The story of the prodigal son speaks volume about life in sin; it never gets better (Luke 15:15-16). Our text today however talks about the son’s attitude at the point of repentance. The Bible says he came to himself and said, ‘even my father’s servants live in better conditions than this’. And when he did return, his father was waiting with open arms (Luke 15:20). Oh, Glory to God!
What is worth your peace with God? Absolutely nothing! Nothing compares to the assurance you have in Christ, both in this world and that which is to come. So, get up like the son in our text today, and restore your relationship with God now. Give up that hurt or malice, and return into His embrace. Let nothing keep you away from the love of your Father!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬
Though Christianity is the largest religion, effective discipling is the most urgent and prevalent need in this nation. Nominalism, pollution of Christianity with spiritism and occult are sadly widespread.
🙏🏼We are praying against every plan of the devil to weaken the church and divert their attention. We break every hold of occultism in the nation.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, help me to give up everything that hinders my relationship with you in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
