“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.



“As a child of your Heavenly Father, there is a promise for you in Isaiah 43:1 that you have been redeemed by God, that He called you by name and you are His. What does it mean to belong to God? Once Christ purchases us with His Blood, we become aliens here on earth and there is a barrier between us and everything here in this world.”


“Jesus is the One looking for you. He is looking for your attention. All around you are signs calling you to get back to God. That is why the heartbeat of the Gospel is the call to repentance – so you can be consecrated and reconciled to your Creator. Have you consecrated your heart to Him?”


“The peace that God gives is more powerful than the noise of the adversary. When Jesus in the boat spoke to the storm, the howling winds and waves obeyed His voice. (Matthew 8:26) What is your storm today? When you put your problems into God’s hands, He will put His peace in your heart and that is the real victory because if you truly believe, your heart will be at rest.”
