John 10:27-28 KJV “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand”
Don’t be threatened by people or circumstances. Don’t be distracted by the noise. Don’t be distracted by negative emotions or any thoughts that exalt them above God’s truth. Just listen to the Shepherd’s voice. He knows the way. Only one thing has ever been needful. It is to hear his word, and to follow him anywhere he may lead. If he says it is OK, it is OK. If he speaks and says to stop, stop. If he gives you a morsel of word to think on, chew on it and be still as it nourishes your body. He knows the way, you are not an orphan. He will not abandon you or lead you astray. Without him we can accomplish nothing, but allowing him to lead and following him will lead us the right way. Thank the Lord today for giving you the great shepherd to follow. Listen for his voice. What is the Shepherd saying to you today? Lord speak, your child is listening.
Psalm 23:4 KJV “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”
