Today's Prayer

Dear God, You own even the cattle on a thousand hills. You made everything...Oh Mighty Creator...and all is yours. You have provided abundantly for your creation. I'm sorry that we have not taken care of so many of the resources you have given us. I'm sorry for our complacency. I am thankful for your perfect plan and creation. I am thankful for your provisions and your ever presence. Please grant wisdom and knowledge that I will be the biblical and wise steward that you want me to be. Thank you for taking care of me and my family. Thank you for your blessings upon us. Thank you for your protection and your haven within the body of Christ. I love you, Father. In Jesus' name, amen.




One Flock, One Shepherd

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. - John 10:16

A friend of mine told me a story about an experience he had in Israel. They were in the country visiting some of the famous biblical sites when they saw a group of sheepherders. A shepherd brought his flock of sheep into a round pen for the night. Then, a few minutes later, another shepherd brought his flock into the pen. Then, a few minutes later, yet another shepherd brought his sheep into the pen. There were three groups of sheep in the pen with no identifying marks among any of them. My friend wondered how in the world they would separate their sheep the next day.

The next morning, a shepherd came over to the pen and made a comment to his sheep. One by one, the sheep filed out to follow him. Only his sheep followed his voice. My friend said it was an amazing scene to see only that shepherd's sheep follow him and the others remain in the pen. What a picture of Jesus' words spoken centuries earlier.

Hearing and responding to Jesus' voice is the key to having a two-way relationship with God. It is the difference between having religion and a relationship. Can you recognize God's voice in your life? Are you listening to the Shepherd's voice? Do you respond when He calls? Ask Jesus to help you increase your ability to hear. Give more time to spending quiet moments in His presence to hear His voice. He wants to be your Good Shepherd.

Steph,  I appreciate this posting so much.  We are bumping shoulders with so many other religions and belief systems that it becomes confusing to the human soul as to which voice is the one true shepherd and what is that Voice saying to us.      what an hour we live in.
