The popular parable of the lost coin found in Luke 15:8-10 is the base of this writeup.
We discover from the parable that woman knew the value of all she had, she knew when one went missing because she had them on the close; though she had 9 coins left, she kept looking for the lost single coin until she found it. And when she found it, she celebrated greatly with her neighbors. That is how it is with us all in our relationship with God. God knows our values and worth, He knows the capacity and greatness that He has placed in each of us and that is why he doesn’t ever give up on us even when we lose our way. Now that we have a basic understanding on this parable, are you lost? That lost coin could have been anywhere; under the cushion or under the rug or mat etc. but the woman kept looking on every corner. The question is what is having a covering over you, what is shielding the light of God from finding you, what is keeping you lost? Is it worry? Is it wrong relationships? Is it habitual errors
He will keep searching for us, He will keep looking into our secrets hideouts, under our dirty habits, into the holes of our sinful selves until he finds us. Though we may have lost our way, we may have lost tract of a right course but he never stops searching with his lamp of truth (the convicting word of God) that sets free. Luke 15:8b says “won’t she light a lamp and look for the coin?” It is very important to remember that God is always at work in all that concerns you. You are not too far lost darling; He has found you!
The coin fell off perhap because it was seperated from the others or because it bounced off etc.. So, do not fall away from the faith, from Gods presence and you will stay found.
Been found by God is the first step and it has been settled a long time ago because; before anything existed, there was Christ (who came for the lost and he claimed us, lifted those coverings and granted us freedom).He has always been alive and is God himself (John 1:1-2).
The second step is to remain found in the presence of God via the Holy Ghost, Zachariah 4:6-7 says for it is not by power nor by might but by the spirit…..Connect with the Holy Ghost and you will stay with the other coin because, you will get lost again without the Holy Ghost. Cut off from me you can do nothing (lost)(John 15:6) You can never be lost in God’s presence. Where are you at the moment? Discover your worth again and let go of devaluing lifestyles; fan to flames those gifting that a life of spiritual mediocrity have turned off. A life that is not in Christ is not worth living, for what is the end thereof?
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
