Depending On The Shepherd

SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE- w. credits

It’s comforting to know that sheep are not expected to take care of themselves. They are expected to be totally dependent on their shepherd. It’s my understanding that when sheep are out grazing and they hear a growl of a predator or something else that frightens them, they do not normally look toward the sound, but to their shepherd. If their shepherd is calm and at rest, they remain at rest as well.

I’m not an expert on sheep, but I know for sure that the Lord wants us to be that trusting. When the enemy approaches with his threats and his frightening sounds, symptoms, and circumstances, we need to look immediately to our Good Shepherd — and to His Word. We know that He and His Word are one, and when that Word says we have the victory over all attacks, we can settle into the rest of faith and watch our Shepherd take down the enemy.

We are His people and the sheep of His pasture! (Psalm 100:3).
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11).
