Are you restless, not knowing what to do. Feeling as if your suppose to be going somewhere not knowing your destination.
This two-line parable is so precise in its meaning. A woman loses one of her coins…
8Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?
9And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
The lost coin symbolizes the lost sheep….that one lost lonely sheep who is restless. Once it finds GOD, it rests evermore. GOD seeks to love each one of His children but we are given free will. We must choose to come to GOD.
That coin didn’t know it was lost. Same with the person who is restless.
Lost sheep are wondering….
4What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
5And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
6And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
This is how GOD must feel. Knowing there are lost sheep and not being able to sustain them. He must rejoice in just one sinner coming to Him. He must sing aloud when a lost sheep is found.
Your destination is not to be lost but found. Don’t let your soul slip into the void of darkness.
