MY SHEEP KNOW MY VOICE

“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.

 

THE COST THE VALUE

“It is the cost of what you have given up for God that makes His relationship so valuable to you. If you examine your life, you will know that if you fight for something, you will not want to lose it.”

THE POTTER’S HANDS

“The Hand that formed you from the dust
Is the Hand that lights the fire to melt you
Is the same Hand that rebuilds you stone by stone
And that fills you up anew.”

THE POWER OF SURRENDER

“Jesus was capable of coming down from the Cross unhurt but He knew that sometimes we have to do what we hate to create something we love. He knew there is great power in surrender.”
