“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.”

(Psalm 95:6-7)


Have you knelt to worship God today? Your body may be kneeling but the real question is, is your heart kneeling? Unless we are humble, we will not bow to Jesus. Our problem is not far from failing to recognise our position before God.


The object of our faith is God. Because God is good, I can bring my requests to Him, share my concerns with Him and cast my cares upon Him, realizing that He is God and I am not; that He is a Father and I am but a child; that He is a shepherd and I am a straying sheep.


Jesus said in John 10:27, “I know my sheep. My sheep know My voice and follow Me. I will give them eternal life”. Other shepherds may slumber and sleep but our own Shepherd keeps us day and night (Psalm 121:4). If you realise that you have been straying far from the Shepherd, know that Jesus came because of you. Accept your position as a straying sheep and allow Jesus to bring you home.


The only safe place for a sheep is by the side of his Shepherd, because the devil does not fear sheep; he just fears the Shepherd. So, our safety lies in being near the Shepherd; stay close to Jesus, know His voice.



“Worry interferes with God’s Spirit in our lives and destroys our sense of judgment. The human spirit when free from the burden of worry, fear and sin is sensitive to the Spirit of God. Your heart needs to be at its best for God before you can pray. .”


“Jesus was very clear that the path to greatness lay in serving others by obeying God. Although He was the Son of God, He learned obedience by what He suffered, obedience to His Father’s will. It was in obedience to God that Jesus became a servant of all.”


“Sometimes the beauty of life is hidden in the dark ; it is already there for those who discover it in the light of revelation.”
