Run To the Shepherd

Hey friends,

I am wondering a couple of things here; Do you ever wonder if the life you live is REALLY worth the fight? Do you "say" to everyone around you that you trust God's provison but "live" as if you have no clue?

WHEW!! I thought I was the only one there for a minute........

“God will always give what is right to his people who cry to him night and day.”
Luke 18:7

Jesus tends to his sheep. And he will tend to you.

If you will let him. How? How do you let him? The steps are so simple.

First, go to him. David would trust his wounds to no other person but God. He said, “You anoint my head with oil” (Ps. 23:5 NKJV). Not, “your prophets,” “your teachers,” or “your counselors.”

Your second step is to assume the right posture. Bow before God.

In order to be anointed, the sheep must stand still, lower their heads, and let the shepherd do his work. Peter urges us to “be humble under God’s powerful hand so he will lift you up when the right time comes” (I Pet. 5:6).

When we come to God, we make requests; we don’t make demands. We come with high hopes and a humble heart. We state what we want, but we pray for what is right. We go to him. We bow before him, and we trust in him.”
