“Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will proclaim your praise.” (Psalm 79:13, NLT)
Although not the smartest animals, sheep can easily distinguish their own shepherd’s voice from all others.
What a blessing it is that you can know you belong to God! Listen for the still, small voice of your Good Shepherd. He may be calling you to pursue a dream you think is unattainable, a reminder that nothing is impossible with God. He may be asking you to reach out to another woman or child who desperately needs a word of encouragement or a bit of help. This, too, is a reminder that He will not call you to that which you cannot accomplish in His name.
Praise your heavenly Father today. Thank Him for being such a loving Shepherd. He will never lose sight of His own. May your ears always be fine-tuned to His voice.
Prayer: Good Shepherd, lead me today in Your everlasting ways. Amen.
