The Goodness of God

Wednesday May 11, 2011

The benefit of the Good Shepherd hinges on our believing that Jesus Christ is our personal Shepherd. If He is your Shepherd and Lord, you will not want and lack. You will be in a place of peace, your soul will be restored, He will lead you in paths of righteousness, you will fear no evil, you will eat a feast while your enemies watch, and goodness and mercy will follow you. In Matt. 4:4 Jesus said that it’s written that man shall live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Don’t draw back from God’s table and His Word. He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35). This is a time to worship and to gather together. The devil is intent against you, and you can condemn him. As part of Body of Christ, you are infused with power from God. Ps. 34:1-10 tells us to bless the Lord at all times and praise Him continually. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear God. Your life should be worship. Matt. 7:7-11 instructs us to ask, seek, and knock and that He gives good things to those who ask Him. Keep Jesus Christ in the Shepherd and Lord position in your life.
