My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. John 10:27 ESVThe star ...

Hearing The Shepherd

  • and your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it; when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 WEB

    A shepherd herding sheep down a path does not have to interact that much, he just follows behind them watching. His presence is there, but he does not have to say anything. However if they come to a fork in the road, or a path leading off to the side, then the sheep may become confused and try and follow it. That is when the shepherd will have to correct them and bring them back on course.

    The Lord is our Shepherd. In this verse, you are walking on the path of life, and if you begin to leave it and turn to the right or to the left, then you will hear the word of the Lord behind you saying: 'This is the way, walk in it.'

    Many times we have prayed: 'Should we do this?' and just gotten silence. Over the years, there seems a pattern developing that if we are making the right decision, we often hear silence.

    It is the times when we would have chosen the other path that He answers back in some way, a verse, a dream, a song, an impression. His word comes as a correction to our course, or encouragement when we are down, when we need it the most.

    These days when we have to make a decision, we pray along these lines: 'Father we want Your will to be done in our lives, and unless You tell us clearly No, then we are going to go forward with this.' The times when we were about to make the wrong decision, instructions came to keep us on the path.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray for Your guidance. I want Your will to be done in my life. I choose You today and I want to stay on Your path. Help me make the right decisions. Walk with me, talk with me, guide me into all that You have for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! If you are in need of prayer, don''t forget that we and our prayer team are ready to lift up your needs! Just go to the Prayer link on the site menu to send in a private request. Have a blessed Friday :)!

Can we blame God for getting quiet? How many times in life did you know not to do something, but it felt so good that you did it anyway. I know that is the case for me. Now I can not blame God if He is a little quiet, I have found that He will always get us back on His road when He is ready. Some say God will not test you, I challenge you to read about Abraham, and then decide. Heavenly Father, please lead us down your path, your path will have your protection and that is what we need!

Amen so true! I have now lost the 3rd closest friend in my life. Things inside my head besides sadness are trying to make me go off course. So I am praying for God's strength guidance and comfort. I know He loves me and that sustains me. His strength has helped me get things done I couldn't do myself. His guidance always at my side. Just keep remembering that no matter what happens in this life Jesus is with you always. Amen Ty Pastor Dion always speaking the right things at the right time.
