“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.

 

HE WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU HAVE NOT ASKED

“So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, I will do what you have asked.” 1 Kings 3:11-12
God was pleased that Solomon requested divine wisdom to carry out his God-given assignment instead of earthly riches or fame, and blessed him more than he could imagine.
In the same way, God tests our hearts to reward us, to see what we truly seek.”

WRITTEN IN HEAVEN

“However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20
When the seventy-two disciples returned with joy from their mission, Jesus warned them that the source of their joy should come not from the visible results of the Spirit’s power, but the Holy Spirit Himself, who has sealed for Christ, and written our name in Heaven.”

REVIVE ME

“As long as you have the gift of life, make sure your spirit is revived and this is something only the Spirit of God can do through His Word, which is spirit and life (John 6:63).

* Oh Holy Spirit, breath of God, breathe in me the breath of God!
* Oh Holy Spirit, through whom all things were created, create in me a new life, a new beginning!.”
