Sobering Experiences

“…After he (the prodigal son) had gone through all his money (whilst abroad), there was a bad famine all through that country and he began to hurt…He was so hungry he would have eaten the corncobs in the pig slop...THAT brought him to his senses…He said,…I’m going back to my father…When he was still a long way off, his father saw him…he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him…calling his servants said...We’re going to feast…” © Luke 15:11-24 MSG italics, emphasis and words in bracket mine

Many are times we wait on God to change our circumstances while God, like the prodigal son’s father, is waiting on us to sober up and act wisely on what is in already in our power. We become drunk when we focus on our problem(s) instead of God; other folks are drunk with pride, arrogance, self-sufficiency, indifference, anger, fear etc

The prodigal son remained  lost in his poor state and inner turmoil until he had an epiphany (came to himself—a realization, sobering experience) triggered by his state, HE HAD THE POWER TO CHANGE his state. You too have the power (ability & know-how) to change your state but your drunkeness is in the way—If I were you, I will work on sobering up!
