Verse of the day
Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Through Jesus’ ministry on earth, God readily demonstrated His interest in our spiritual, and even physical needs. With joy, He takes on the responsibility of a Father and has given us fathers on earth to show His loving kindness. Often times, we may judge God’s nature through the situations that we face on earth. When they’re good, we may conclude that God is good, and when they are not, there’s the temptation to conclude that He is not giving us the best.
However, we must always remember His heart towards us as revealed to us in His word. For example, in the above scripture, we belong to Him and He watches over us like a shepherd does his sheep. The shepherd is described in the popularly known 23rd Psalm. The good shepherd is one who ensures that his sheep does not want, and constantly leads his sheep in the way of life, peace and joy everlasting. Our Father genuinely cares about us and because we are His, He watches over us with love.
This knowledge should draw us to a place of trust in Him, where we draw even closer to Him. Beloved, Father deeply cares about your wellbeing on earth and is well acquainted with the circumstances you face. You are His, He watches over you and is ever ready to do you good. Today, open your heart wide to receive of His goodness and trust Him to always have your best interest at heart.
You are blessed!
Father, I thank you for your loving kindness towards me, and your desire that I remain in peace, joy and rest in you all the days of my life.
