Abba Father, what a beautiful truth to behold: there is someone who watches over me with great love and desires to lead me.
Sometimes I fear my future.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done.
And I confess that sometimes I handle feeling fearful and overwhelmed by trying to figure things out on my own.
Ahhh . . . but then you remind me that you desire to lead me each day in decisions large and small. I am not on my own to figure out life.
You are my good shepherd. With your staff you lead me, and with your rod you protect me. I will not be afraid. I will not get overwhelmed.
Peace, be still my soul!
I will stop and seek you, my sovereign shepherd, and simply take the next step, knowing that each step will lead to another as I listen for your still small voice. Just as you guided the wise men by a star and warned Joseph by an angel, you will speak to me in a voice I understand.
Your voice creates unshakable confidence in me. What an awesome truth to remember: my good shepherd is watching over me and wants to guard and guide me. Amen.
(Pray God’s Word: John 10:1–13; Matthew 2: 6, 9–13)
