(09/22/2000) shepherd or sheep?
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: shepherd or sheep?
Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the
Lord thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place
which the Lord shall choose to place his name there.
One wonderful thing about our Christian walk is that
we have the Holy Spirit and the inner witness. Deep
down, many times, we know what God wants us to do.
Some of us, however, are very strong-willed and we
also know what we want to do. Sometimes what we want
to do is not the same as what God wants us to do.
God chooses the places where we should go to. God
chooses for many things in our lives. Either we get to
choose or God gets to choose. If God chooses, He
becomes our Shepherd and we shall have no lack [Psalm
23:1], wanting nothing in the end.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
You know what the revelation is? This verse only
applies when God is our Shepherd. Not when He is only
God in our lives but when He becomes our Shepherd. If
we choose, how can God be our Shepherd? Who is the
sheep? Let God choose the place and let us like sheep
trust in God and follow.
