Yes, the LORD is calling the prodigals back to Him.
It is not what you expect to see when you think of a prodigal. You might think of one that is gone off a good ways into gross sin and worldliness, but it isn’t quite that way.
He is calling back to those who have hardened their heart and become independent.
There was a time when they were so hungry and thirsty for Him, His presence and His word. And for whatever reason got frustrated, hurt or abused in church life. Without realizing it they walked away.
Has there been a moment when you felt a tug on your heart but you didn’t respond to it?
Were there days you didn’t take the time to bask in His presence to seek His face just because you wanted to be with Him?
He is calling you back to your first love where you get excited when you hear His name and want so much for Him to speak to you.
You might feel dry and awkward at times in your walk. Jesus never left you and is waiting and drawing you but you feel He is so far away. It is because you went off a long distance without even realizing it.
This can happen getting busy with church activities, with work or whatever you think is so important like Martha. You left the place of sitting at His feet just listening to Him speak like Mary.
Many are going through the motions with outward appearance but lacking His power in their life.
When was the last time you truly witnessed to someone, led one to the LORD, saw a miracle happen with you praying?
When did you really experience the intimate presence of the LORD or if you even desired it?
The LORD is calling His bride to come back home to be with Him to partner with Him in ministry.
He is drawing her into His secret place for this is past time to be ready.
By His great grace and mercy there is a window of time left to get ready.
We need to be in a close relationship with Him because when all hell breaks loose and great testing many will fall away.
Without His love flowing like a river in us and through us to others we will not make it to the end.
There will be a great shaking and a separating to take place in the church and we need to be in the place where He knows us intimately manifesting the fruit of His spirit.
Many had become complacent and returned to worldly living, sounding and acting like the world.
We need to wake up to the seriousness of the hour. He is calling His prodigals home to Him to bask in His intimate presence and love.
Now is the time.
Cry out that you respond to the call and to His mercy and grace!

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
