Bible Ballistics: BBs #95 Does the Shepherd Know YOU???
We’ve talked recently about friendship and our Good Shepherd, and I’d like to share just a brief word on that same subject. As Psalm 23:1 says
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” He is all I need because:
He said, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.“ John 10:11,
Jesus is our Good Shepherd, who not only saves us from the penalty and power of sin but also walks with us and guides us by His Spirit. We can KNOW the what, when, how and where to be, if we’ll but commit to have an intimate relationship with Him.
John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
We must choose whom we will listen to—
the ‘thief’, who wants to destroy our life,
or the Shepherd who gave His life for you and me?
He died so all who will believe in Him could have abundant life here and now, and eternal life right into our heavenly home. (abundant life in Him, not necessarily pain or trouble free nor material prosperity)
But He doesn’t stop there; He leads His sheep, and they know His voice and follow Him. As the door of the sheep, He not only gives us abundant ‘life’, but also freedom to come in and go out as He leads and provides pasture for each of us. As we serve our Lord, He provides in every way because;
“And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.” John 10:4.
And, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9,
So?? Here’s our shot for today.
Be sure of the voice you are listening to.
Are you listening to the right voice?
So many voices call for our devotion
and commitment today,
but we must be sure we are hearing
from the Shepherd.
When we follow HIS voice we will have perfect peace and provision.
So?? Press on dear ones,
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
He is ALL I need!!!!
Trust HIM with your “ALL”!!
