The Shepherd raced through the trees, his heart pulsating madly inside his chest heavily.
The cry came again.
He shoved branches out of his way, not caring if they pricked his skin.
The cry was getting closer as he reached the edge of the stream.
Baa! Baa! Baa! Baa!
“Where are you?”
Deep fear flooded his heart, dragging life out of him but he refused to believe the worst.
The cries came just in front of him.
He looked and moved closer to the trees in front of him, there he found his little one.
He broke into a sob at the sight of the bruises on its legs.
Lifting it up slowly, he tenderly wrapped his arms around the lamb and began to walk home.
He was happy that the one missing lamb was found.
Did you see how the shepherd ran to the rescue of his sheep? Did you see how the shepherd followed the voice of the sheep? That is how God comes to your rescue when you call.
Call on Jesus for help. He is your Shepherd and ever ready to help you. There’s even a song describing the type of love God has for us. It goes like this
Oh, the overwhelming, Never-ending
Reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights till I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine.
I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it.
Still You give Yourself away
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
coming after me
There is no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
God displays how much He loves us by going all the way to find us. Call out to Him today and let Him find you.
I myself will tend my sheep and give them a place to lie down in peace, says the Sovereign Lord. – Ezek. 34:15 NLT
May you always be found by God. Amen.
Lord, I call to you at all times. May I never be too strong for You to help.
Are you calling out to God for help or being too strong for God to help?
I receive the help of the Great Shepherd.
Song lyrics by Corey Asbury.
