“…for he is our God. We are his sheep, and he is our Shepherd. Oh, that you would hear him calling you today and come to him!” (Psalms 95: 7, the Living Bible)
The Shepherd is always calling us, watching us, guiding us. Our God is at the ready for us to turn to Him for direction, for comfort, for a release of fear and burden. The job of the Shepherd is to keep His sheep from harm, healthy, and in the right pasture.
We are the lambs in God’s pasture and He lovingly cares for us. We are His flock and we are necessary to His purpose. What is a shepherd without sheep? What is a good shepherd without a full flock that is flourishing? We have the divine Shepherd, the One Who is the very essence of every right quality of Life and Love and Truth. Our God is the best at all that He does.
Let’s remember that obedience to God’s leading is not blind following. It is a reliance on infinite wisdom, a trust in God and the divine eye that can see where danger might be, and can provide us shelter, a rescue, a way. And being a part of this flock is not confining, for God’s field is infinite Life, expansive yet secure, blooming with sustenance, beauty, and fun.
God is calling you today to recognize your innocence, your preciousness to Him, and to live and play with the freedom that knowing and accepting this naturally brings!
