“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.

 

GOD CAN USE ANYONE

“Sometimes our lives are so centred on what we ourselves are going through – how we are doing, how we are treated, what our situation looks like, that we forget that God doesn’t look at people the same way we do. He holds all men’s hearts in His hands and can use anyone to bring to pass His purpose.
Someone you see as a thorn in your flesh today can be your helper tomorrow – that is why tomorrow is a mystery.”

GREAT MEN HAVE GREAT HABITS

“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.”

HE WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU HAVE NOT ASKED
