God our Shepherd!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hello precious one, today I will be talking to you about God as our shepherd. Have you ever heard the word Shepherd?

It’s a name given to someone. So who is a shepherd and what does he/she do?

A shepherd is a person who tends sheep, his or her responsibility is to watch, keep, feed, and protect a sheep.

In the bible, we see on several occasions that it refers to God as a Shepherd and the bible also calls us God’s sheep.

Just like an earthly Shepherd, there are several responsibilities promised to us by God. Our father is “The good shepherd” and his sheep are always watched by him.

Let me show you a few places where the bible speaks about God as our shepherd and us as his sheep.

 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. –Psalms 100:3 (NIV)

Don’t you just love the word of God? The bible calls us God’s people, as in his very own, and then he says we are the sheep of his pasture.

Another verse is Psalm 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want.  –Psalms 23:1 (NIV)

This verse makes it a personal confession, God is ”my Shepherd”, as a result of this, I am not in lack of anything, he is responsible for my daily needs!

The last verse we will be looking at is found in Isaiah 40:11

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. –Isaiah 40:11 (NIV)

This verse declares that God carries us as his children, not only are we carried; he places us close to his heart, such that for anything to happen to us, that means God too will be affected.

Thank God we have a Good Shepherd who cares for us!

PRAYER:
Father help me to know you as my Shepherd.

ACTION POINT:
Make sure you take out time to pray this morning

DECLARATION:
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
