“O come, let us worship before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.” (Psalms 95: 6-7)
Let’s come forward and worship our Father. Let’s not wait for desperation to call on Him with expectation of help. Neither let us wait for a perfect human scenario to praise His goodness and His power. Let’s not neglect listening to and following our Shepherd, for the pasture belongs to Him and He knows where we will find rest and when we are to safely play.
God is our Maker. He knows us inside out and designed us to follow Him, to express His intention, to be the sheep that He cares for and who demonstrate His sweet Life. He is our God, the very nature of the good within us, and this awareness leads us home to safety and at the same time gives us the freedom to roam, knowing we will never be left behind. We will always be in His flock and He will always care where we are and how we are.
And the same goes for all the other sheep. Our Shepherd is the Love that made us all. He does not play favorites or neglect any of His own brilliant ideas. Each is important to God and important to the full integrity of the flock. Not one can be lost from it, and all must necessarily obey the Shepherd. He knows the way and the way is divine, perfecting, protecting Love.
