John 10:14 KJV — I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for being our Good Shepherd. Thank You for Your love, kindness, compassion, understanding, protection, instruction, and guidance. Lord, please keep me from going my own way. I understand why the Psalmist said Your rod and staff are a comfort, for it is through Your instruction, Your correction, and Your Word I find truth, live, and security. Lord Jesus, for those who have yet to know You, please continue to call them, open their eyes to see Your truth, unstop their ears to Your voice, soften their hearts, and lead them to Your paths. Lord, for those who are called by Your name, please help us to be quick to obey, aware of the snares of evil, gentle in our manners, not headstrong, nor hurtful to others, and please help us to live in such a way that others know we have been with You. Lord Jesus, I want my life to bring glory to Your name. Thank You for all Your wonderous works, but especially for salvation. Amen!
