The prodigal son…

‘I will arise and go to my father’…

At a deep level this son knew that his father would accept him – he knew his father…

The father had to let him leave – it was his choice to go…

The father had to endure the pain of waiting for him to return – of his own volition…

There was something deep inside this son which knew his father – he knew his father’s heart – he knew that his father would receive him – if only as a slave, he knew his father would receive him – he knew where he belonged…

And after going through what he needed to go through – sowing his wild oats so to speak – he returned to his father – and his father was waiting – waiting with open arms to receive his son – his lost son…

There are those of us who need to practically know our place – once we practically know ‘where we belong’ we are freed to grow in the protection and security of that place – ‘our place’ so to speak in the world…

‘A place to stand’ or Tūrangawaewae in Maori…

And from this place of acceptance having experienced all that the world has to offer and having found it empty we can serve – we can freely serve the Living God – not because we have to but because we want to – we have tasted and seen that the Lord is good – that the Lord is as good as His word to never forsake us or leave us and to never condemn us…

His Blood is strong…

Very Strong…

Stronger than any condemnation and His Blood is always welcoming us home…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
