“He Sees You” by Kirk Hunt
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
Luke 15:20 KJV
“His father saw him.” Dad’s heart for his son gave him sight and insight. A “great way off” was not just a reference to the physical distance.
Dad scanned the horizon every day, looking for his son. He saw the boy coming home, in his heart. With faith that strong, his physical eyes were compelled to look for the physical manifestation.
The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-24) is a parable, but it teaches an inescapable truth: God loves you and wants you back. Separation from Him is not normal. Reconciliation with Him is natural.
Perhaps you have left your faith in Him for a time. His love for you has never wavered. His arms are open to you, even now.
Perhaps you have kept your faith, but have stumbled here and there. He loves you, even still. Run back to his open arms.
God loves you. His arms are open and extended to you. Your heavenly Father will see you when you turn back to Him.
Think: Godly loves me. God wants me back.
Pray: “Father-God, I thank You for Your love for me and Your open arms for me.”
