I Am the good shepherd; and. I know My sheep, and am known by My own. - John 10:14
The Lord is not just our shepherd, He is our Father. He is not a hired labourer who has been given the task to watch over the sheep of another. He is both the Creator and owner of His sheep.
The Shepherd knows His sheep. He has intimate knowledge of all His sheep. He knows us by name. He knows our personalities.
He knows our strengths and weaknesses. He knows our dreams. He knows our fears. He knows us so much that He can read our innermost thoughts even before we construct them into ideas. Nothing about us escapes His attention.
Not only does He know our natures, but He knows our needs. Don't forget that the Lord Jesus knows what it is like to be human.
He knows what It is like to face the limitations of humanity because He lived amongst us and experienced what we experience. He knows what it is like to feel the pressure of temptation. He knows what it is like to experience loneliness, sorrow and joy.
Today, you can come to Him with all your concerns and pour out your heart to Him in prayer. He is ready to help and guide you. He is more powerful than your enemies so you can trust Him to deliver you from the hands of those which seek to bring you down and destroy your life.
Your Good Shepherd cares about you.He knows what it is like to be a sheep. And He knows what you are going through. He wants you to trust Him today with your worries. He wants to deliver you and fill your heart with joy and peace.
Prayer: I come to You Lord, with my burdens; deliver me and give me Your joy and peace.
Scriptural Reading: John 10:7-21
