The Good Shepherd

In John 10, Jesus describes himself as the Good Shepherd. Today, I will be adding a page in my journal titled, The Good Shepherd. On it I will begin a list of all the ways in which Jesus is truly my good Shepherd.

Can you journal today about the goodness of the Lord?

Hope When Your Circumstances Don’t Change

Contrast Job 19 and Psalm 138. In Job 19, Job continues to despair over his circumstances yet he also continues to come to the Lord. In Psalm 138, David hears a response from the Lord the same day he calls to Him. Can you remain hopeful even when your circumstances don’t change? 

Questions to Build Faith

Are you on the mountain or in the valley today? No matter where you are, ask yourself these questions:

-Has God changed?

-Is God strong?

-Does God love you?

There really isn’t a right or wrong answer. Don’t be afraid of your answers. As you wrestle with these questions, watch how God will grow your faith.

Trading in Shame

Isaiah 61:7 Instead of your shame there will be a double potion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their pot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.

We all carry around shame. The Lord wants to take your shame and give you a new name! Delight! Holy! Redeemed! Sought out! Not Forsaken!

Humility = Restoration

Read Isaiah 56 and 57 today. Notice how leaning into your need for God leads to him delivering and healing you!
