As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness. Ezekiel 34:12
Jesus knows how to reach those who need to be lifted. He sees the struggles in our lives and knows how to manage our days. He cradles us. And as we pray, He comforts us in the arms of His LOVE.
We mustn’t be afraid to recognize we need the Savior. In the humbleness of truth, God opens our eyes to see. He helps us notice what’s been missing and gives us desire to TRUST. He readies us to experience what happens when we choose to walk with Jesus.
The Bible tells us to not be afraid. Isaiah 40:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
When we find ourselves spiritually empty, God knows how to fill us full. He humbles our hearts and transforms us. He helps us examine our lives. He reminds us there will never be a day without His presence. He helps us welcome JOY and allows us to feel the fullness of our faith.
God WILL do amazing things! He will help us overflow with HOPE from the power within us. He will bring PEACE unexplainable and remind us we are stronger than before. He will show us how He is working in our lives.
We mustn’t resist what God has already promised. We must pray and tell Him what we need. He knows how to lift us where we belong. He will take care of those who ask to be rescued. We will be greatly rewarded as we glorify Him and offer the prayers of our praise.
Dear God, thank you for loving us through weakness. Open our eyes to clearly see how much we are loved. Forgive us when we turn away from what will make us stronger. Help us find JOY in the Savior and open our hearts to FULLY receive. We will TRUST You all of our days and praise You for all things. Thank you for the power of Your amazing love. Thank you for the perfect PEACE of Jesus. Amen
