Our Shepherd of Love

“He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.” Isaiah 40: 11 King James Version

Just as a shepherd gathers the lambs when they go astray so our Shepherd of love gathers us when we go astray.  Jesus leads us through all the dangerous, rough and rocky obstacles that satan puts in our lives.  Jesus loves us so much and is very protective of us.  Not only is Jesus our Saviour and friend, He is also our Shepherd of love.

When we become overwhelmed with the crises in our lives and feel like we can’t take another step or give another smile, He picks us up and carries us.  He is always with us.  He never leaves us, not even for one minute.  We sometimes leave Him but He remains faithful to us.  O that you and I would be as faithful to Him as He is to us.

There are times when we do things the way we want to do them and do things that we want to do rather than doing things His way and doing the things that He wants to do.  If you have strayed off the path He has put you on, allow Him to gently lead you back on the right path, the path that He has set for you.  His way is always the best way.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, our Shepherd of love.  May we be as faithful to Him as He is to us.  We pray that You would please keep us from straying off the path You have set for us.  May we die to our own selfish wants and desires and do the things that make Jesus happy.  We love You, Heavenly Father, and we appreciate You.  Amen.
