The LORD is your Shepherd

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

Many times we battle with knowing the voice of God.  There is a battle in our minds as we try to sort out our thoughts, conscience, imaginations, and emotions.  God, however, is willing to speak to you every day and even every moment.  The Holy Spirit of God in you is gently speaking and guiding you.  You just have to tweak your antenna to pick up His signals.  His voice is gentle, loving, and kind towards you.

The Word of God is the language of the Holy Spirit. The more you know His Word, the more you will hear His voice speaking His Word in your heart. He will bring the Word to your remembrance whenever you need it and whenever you listen for it.  His Word will guide you, correct you, encourage you, comfort you and instruct you.  As you read His Word, listen to His voice. As you hear His voice be willing to obey.

As you listen to the voice of your Shepherd He promises you His guidance, provision, and protection. “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28.  Jesus Christ, your Shepherd loves you.

Kingdom Declaration:

The LORD Jesus is my Shepherd who is guiding, providing, and protecting me.  I am safe and secure.

An attitude of meekness

“In a little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them they will not be found.  But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.”  Psalm 37:10,11.

Jesus emphasized the power of meekness to His disciples, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”  Meekness is a key to possessing your inheritance that includes God’s salvation, provision, peace, purpose, and eternal rewards.  Meekness is an attitude towards God where you humbly acquiesce to His plans and purpose for your life.  Meekness in an attitude of rest knowing that God is in you, with you and for you therefore you are safe and secure because of His abiding grace.  It’s not by your might and power that you are saved and safe, but the LORD is your Salvation.

Meekness is also an attitude towards others.  It is an attitude of a student to a teacher, an employee to a supervisor, a child towards parents, husband and wife towards each other, and a friend towards a friend.

A meek attitude is your guarantee of victory and great peace in all areas of life.

Be blessed today as you purpose an attitude of meekness.  Let it be a power within that gives you the power to rule your world (emotions, choices and actions).  Nothing and no one can stop you from your inheritance on Earth.  The glory of God watches over you as it rises within you.

Kingdom Declaration:

My King of glory has secured all my needs for a delightful inheritance.
