Our Creator and Shepherd
Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Psalm 100:3
God created us to be His own children by adopting us into His own family; making us one of His own. This is the good news for those of us don't feel like we belong to our own family. We belong to Gods' family and it is the largest family on earth.
The Lord is our shepherd and He takes such good care of us. By acknowledging Him we learn about His character and how He is a perfect example for us to follow. He shows us how to live by the fruits of the Spirit. He also teaches us to listen to His voice. As His flock of sheep we learn discernment, so that we know for certain it is God speaking to us.
We learn to listen to His instruction and follow Him wherever He leads. Even if one of us goes astray He will leave the rest to come find us. We have the freedom to run all over the pasture (the world) but we also need to come together when He calls us. Coming together as one is when we see the power of God working to heal the sick, setting the captives free, and the eyes of the blind are spiritually opened. He rewards us in so many ways.
Gods' unfailing love stretches to the ends of the earth and flows down from generation to generation.
