The Good Shepherd


His Sheep know His voice and He calls them by name. I have heard people say that if your not hearing the voice of the Lord calling your name then that must mean you are not His. I want you to be encouraged that the reason you might not be hearing Him right now might be because you have wandered a little to far and you are out of voice range. Be encouraged that God is with each of us every single day and every moment of the day. He lovingly leads and guides and shows us the paths we should take. We may veer off the path sometimes and find ourselves wandering in the darkness and feeling alone and afraid but do not be afraid my dear friend, for your good Shepherd is so very loving and merciful that when you call He will come and rescue you. And when He finds you, He will rejoice and lift you upon His shoulders and bring you back home.

May this New year be a year of staying close to Jesus. Keep Him in your sight don't get ahead of Him, but walk close by His side. He will always lead you beside the still waters and into the green pastures. When you stay close to Him you are free to frolic and play without fear. When you remain close to Jesus your heart will not be troubled but you will know His perfect peace that passes all understanding.
If you would like, please share your desire for the New Year concerning Christ in your life...

Tamela,

Happy New Year!

My desires for the New Year are what i will share in my next posting. I already have the title: "An Actively Replicating Repetitive Sequence that Serves no Known Function". There that ought to get the curiosity going. :)

Happy New Year, Tamela.

'Do not be afraid my dear friend, for your good Shepherd is so very loving and merciful that when you call, He will come and rescue you. And when He finds you, He will rejoice and lift you upon His shoulders and bring you back home.'

We shall see how this works in a variety of ways in my life in 2010.

I want to walk worthy of the Lord in everything I do, whether it is teaching Sunday School, washing dishes, or talking to a friend. I also want to be more intentional about making Christ known.

Amen you have a worthy desire:)

Thank you Anon,

It's a growing and learning process when it comes to the working of the Lord in someone's life.. I'm thankful for the Lord teaching me :)

You're quite right, Tamela. I've been rescued by God from some desperate situations, even in a seemingly quiet life like the one I've led. What I feel bad about is how quickly I forget just what a relief it was when God came to my rescue. Your site is as good to visit as ever. Have a blessed New Year.
Tamela's Place said…
Thank you so much Andrew :) I understand what you mean about easily forgetting those times of rescue and what it was like. But our God is faithful still when we call. And may we not forget next time.

Have a very blessed new year Andrew :)

Yes, keep the joy, not just the Joy of Painting, but to keep the Lord as central in mind through prayer. Time will tell where I end up.:)

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
