The Good Shepherd

29 Apr

Revelation 7:17
“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

This is one of the most interesting Scriptures.  The Lamb who is also a Shepherd.  What a great illustration of the Christ who took on our weaknesses.  He is worthy to lead us, since He has walked where we live.

Christ is our perfect Shepherd.  He knows the paths of our lives.  He understands the best route to take.  He knows when our soul needs rest, refreshment, and nourishment.  We must learn to trust Him daily for our every need.  We must trust His plan for our lives if we want fulfillment.

I want my life to count for something.  Only under the guidance of the “Good Shepherd” will that come to pass.

If I follow the Lord’s plan for my life, then He will lead me to the right places along the way.  Yes, sometimes the road will be difficult.  But He also knows the rest stops as well.  He will bring us to places of refreshment and restoration that we need if we are to make it to the end.

I must learn to trust in His plan for my life.  He knows the way a lot better than I do.  Once I can acknowledge that, life gets so much more fulfilling.

Whether you have in the past or not – place your life at Jesus’ feet today.  Let Him work it out to His glory.  Put your expectation in Him to bring you to your destiny.
