God’s Awesome Power in the Life of Your Wayward, Rebellious Teenage Prodigal: Hope for the Lost Teen

Are you a parent of a prodigal? Do you wonder where God is, if He is listening and if He cares about your child? Do you know how amazing your God is? Do you understand that He can do anything in the life of your child? If you are a Christian, there was a moment in time when you traded your sin for God’s forgiveness, your death for eternal life, and your pain and sorrow for everlasting joy. And yet, even as we are reminded of those things, we have a tendency to yawn in the mundane knowledge of what Christ has done for us! How sad that we often miss the incredible awesomeness of the one who created us, redeemed us, loves us and provides everlasting life to us. Friend, the God of the universe that breathed entire galaxies into being, Who poured the oceans from His very hand, Who gave the stars their light, Who dusted butterfly’s wings to bring flight, and breathed His very life into your lungs can do anything. Anything. By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (Psalms 33:6)

Parenting the rebellious, angry prodigal teenager is tough business. Are you and your teen constantly at odds? Does your very presence set your teenager off? If your teen is walking far from God it shouldn’t surprise you that your prodigal may become uncomfortable in your presence. You may be accused of being judgmental without saying a word. Sometimes they are both drawn to you and repelled at the same time. The Holy Spirit in you beckons to those in darkness, but the sin in their souls can simultaneously pull them away if they are not at the point of repentance. Know that darkness tries to flee in the presence of light, but we must remember “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world”. (John 4:4) John 16:8 tells us that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin. “And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment”.
