Isn’t it strange that one day we can be excitedly happy and the next day be quiet and reflective?
Most of my days I find that I am somewhere in the middle.
Today, I am on the quiet, reflective side.
As I read Psalm 100, verse three stood out to me.
“Know this: the Eternal One Himself is the True God. He is the One who made us; we have not made ourselves; we are His people, like sheep grazing in His fields. ”
Picturing myself as a sheep, out on a field with other sheep is a comforting thought as I continue to think about the fact that Jesus is my owner and shepherd.
If a wolf came near the flock, my Shepherd would protect me.
If I was in danger of walking to a dangerous place, my Shepherd might use His staff to move me back to safety.
If I was thirsty, my Shepherd would guide me to water.
When I think of sheep, I imagine animals that do not seem stressed.
Jesus is my Shepherd.
He will take care of me—
And all the rest of His sheep, too.
