Are You a Sheep Without a Shepherd?

Numbers 27:17b- “… the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.”

 

A few weeks ago, at a neighborhood Bible Study, we talked about our Lord, as the Good Shepherd.

Last week, my sister gave me a short book about the Twenty-Third Psalm.

Yesterday, I hung a print on my office wall, depicting Jesus carrying a lamb on His shoulders.

“God,” I said, “are you trying to tell me something?”

Isn’t that the course things often take?

The first time something happens:  Hmm.

The second time: Wow!

The third occurrence: “Okay, God. You’ve got my attention.”

So, I asked what God wanted me to learn about sheep.

Did I have something in common with them that He wanted me to see?

They have poor eyesight and are timid, fearful creatures. They need a shepherd to lead them.

I was beginning to get fearful of losing my parents while unable to spend time with them in the nursing home.

His message to me?

“I am the Good Shepherd. Let me lead you, as my sheep. Don’t be concerned with what is going on around you. My eyesight is perfect. I see what lies ahead. Keep following me and I will get you through.”

Have you become fearful of what life holds for you during these uncertain times?

Together, let’s follow the Good Shepherd.
