Jesus the GOOD Shepherd!

Whenever I pray through Psalm 23, I feel so refreshed. Jesus IS our Shepherd. He told His disciples that He IS the GOOD Shepherd, and immediately added that “the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep” (see John 10:11). He distinguished between those who are hired to do the job and those who do it from the heart. It is a powerful concept of leadership and He showed us the example. Leadership is about caring about the people we lead, feeling for them and being touched by their needs and challenges. We, like sheep, need guidance, care, comfort, food, protection, and other provisions. When this Good Shepherd is your Lord, He cares about every aspect of your life. He makes you lie down in green pastures (total provision). In fact, He is with you in every storm and watches over you jealously. Take heart and know that once you know Christ, you are in good hands.

Take a moment to pray for your church and your place of work. Pray that the presence of God will be felt mightily. The earth is the LORD’S and all the fullness thereof. Declare His Lordship over your environment and pray that He will take His place.
