Scripture:

 Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 

Observation:

God is God. He is creator, owner, Father and shepherd.

 

Application:

 In this short verse, we are reminded of four truths about God and who He is in relation to us. First He created us. He didn’t have to, but He chose to. I am His masterpiece, created in His image. I owe every breath to Him. He is owner. I am His. I belong to Him. I am not my own. He is my Father and I am His son. I am His child. He is both my provider and protector. Finally, He is my shepherd. I am His sheep. He leads me, not the other way around.

 

Prayer:

I am so thankful for who you are in my life. Thank you for playing each of these roles in my life and the life of everyone I will meet today. You are good!
