As the people of God assemble today may those who have strayed like a lost sheep respond to the Good Shepherd’s seeking of them. May they not forget His commandments and return to the safety of the fold. “I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek, inquire for, and demand Your servant, for I do not forget your commandments.” (Ps.119:176, Amp)
As the people of God assemble today may the strength of the name of the Lord fill them with overcoming vitality. May they realize they have a friend that sticks closer than a brother and that He is the strong one standing with them and upholding them by His powerful right hand. Ps.63:8, Amp – “My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.”

Oh, sheep, know thy Shepherd. The Good Shepherd is too compassionate to be cruel and He is too wise to be irrational. His ways are not the epitome of men’s frustrations and anger with one another nor the outworking of men’s legalisms. (Excerpt from “Sheep Have Short Legs” book by Marty Gabler)
The Lord God is our keeper. He keeps us in the palm of His hand and watches over us daily. We can trust Jesus, our Good Shepherd, to take note of His sheep in very practical matters. May the Lord help and protect you to keep your confidential matters confidential. May the Lord keep your passwords, emails, FaceBook, webpages and bank accounts secure. May those who would attempt to say things to your detriment be checked by the Spirit of the Lord, lest they hinder your righteous progress. May the Lord rebuke the devourer in your behalf. (Isa.33:6, Msg) “God keeps your days stable and secure—salvation, wisdom, and knowledge in surplus, and best of all, Zion’s treasure, Fear-of-God.” We are praying you discover daily that the Good Shepherd is keeping you.

Counsel For Living #6— When looking at a Source beyond ourselves, anxiety has a sneaky way of implying distrust and implying that we might do better for ourselves out of our own efforts. But Peter counsels us to cast all our concerns on all-powerful and wise God. As the original language suggests, may we take even the cause of the concern to the Lord and leave it there. The very words of Jesus show us in Jn.10:14 that HE is the Good Shepherd Who stands in defense of the flock and that He is nothing like the abandoning shepherd of v.13. May we give ourselves to Him unreservedly trusting His watchful care.
“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” (1Pe.5:7, Amp)
