The Lord is my Shepherd……

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul. Psalms 23:1-3a

The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread? Psalms‬ ‭27:1‬

This is “Amazing Grace”

We have the ultimate shepherd, who never wavered, to sacrifice his very life,. He experienced what no God, should have to suffer, so that those who recognized, his substitutional sacrifice was for their own sins, would live with him forever. He was fully God and fully Man, and took on our punishment, that those who would believe this in faith, would live!

Our prayers are not for us to be seen, but for us and our hearts to be seen by God. It is not for us to receive Glory, but for him to receive Glory and Honor and Praise, and to petition him for his will ours needs? It’s not about us, but about him.

In my own strength, I would not have the capacity to love, but Paul says, in Philippians, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. –Lord, through your strength, help me to love others who are unlovable, just as I was to you.–

A direct command from God through Joshua. Now that you know where it’s coming from, what are you going to do? Should we fear God or this world? The battle rages on, but the victory is won! Jesus has claimed the victory.

It is through Jesus, that we have received everything we need for life in him. As undeserving as we are, Jesus took it upon himself, to bear our transgression, so we might be set free, from the bondage of sin. Can I please get an Amen!

If you are in despair today, please, call upon the name of Jesus. He will not disappoint. He will walk with you I n the most darkest times. In the Best of time, he will be your most Trusted companion.

Lord, May we all be as patient as you were to us, as we pray for those to turn to you, as the one who can save them from there sins, just as you saved us from ours.
