"Like a shepherd, he tends his flock. He gathers the lambs in his arms, carries them close to his heart, and gently leads the mother sheep." Isa. 40:11

I love this verse. It is such a beautiful picture of how God takes care of us. I researched sheep, especially sheep in the Bible, and here's what I found -

Sheep cannot find the best food for themselves. They must be led to it.

They do not have the instincts to find their way home.

They run from danger.

They never mistake their shepherd's voice for anyone else. Even when two flocks are together, they will easily separate and follow their own shepherd just by the sound of his voice.

Sounds a lot like us!

God knows what is best for us. Often times we cannot see the full picture and want the wrong things.

We cannot get to heaven on our own. We can only get there by being led in Jesus.

We run from the devil. We cannot successfully defeat him in our lives without God's strength.

If we are in God's word and following after Him, we will recognize His voice speaking to us in our lives.
