I Finally Came to My Senses

Luke 15:17-20 The son realised that he had been very foolish. He thought, 'All my father's hired workers have plenty of food. But here I am, almost dead because I have nothing to eat. I will leave and go to my father. I will say to him: Father, I have sinned against God and have done wrong to you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But let me be like one of your hired workers.' So he left and went to his father.

Let’s be honest. We do some stupid things in life. We wander off from what is best, to chase after questionable things, and one day, you wake up and realise what an idiot you’ve been.

For someone who’s pretty bright, I can be such an idiot! I spent the first thirty-six years of my life running away from God, as though somehow, it’s possible to hide from Him. As though somehow, He wouldn’t notice. As though somehow, on that day when I stand before Him, He’d tell me that it was all-okay, everything will be fine.

Everything wasn’t fine!! It just wasn’t. Always this sense that something was missing, that one day the reckoning would come.

Then one day, I listened to a man – Ted Keating – talking about the fact that God was calling me. Me! It sounds kind of corny now, but through Ted, God spoke so clearly into my heart. Everything wasn’t okay! That’s when I finally came to my senses. I turned my life over to Jesus, lock, stock and barrel, on the 18th of October 1995.

Luke 15:17-20 The son realised that he had been very foolish. He thought, ‘All my father’s hired workers have plenty of food. But here I am, almost dead because I have nothing to eat. I will leave and go to my father. I will say to him: Father, I have sinned against God and have done wrong to you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But let me be like one of your hired workers.’ So he left and went to his father.

I have to wonder, what took me so long to come to my senses? Please, don’t be like me. If you have some turning back to God to do, do it today.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
