The Place God Prepares For You
by David Shannon Wooten – January 5, 2018
Psalm 100:3, “Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.”
Your Heavenly Father claims you as His child. He declares it to the world. You are His. To clarify His love for you He uses the example of how a shepherd cares for his sheep. The shepherd leads his sheep to green pastures so they are fed; always protected and always provided for.
Don’t ever doubt God’s care for you. He does not abandon His people. This year you may go through some dry seasons, but you never have to doubt that God will leave you in a barren place for long period of time. In fact, the place that “feels” like barren to us, God is still providing. His promise to you…
- He will never leave or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5-6)
- He gives you His peace. (John 14:27)
- He is not slack concerning His promises. (2 Peter 3:9)
- He will open the door that no one can shut. (Revelation 3:8)
- He will not allow any weapon from the enemy to harm you. (Isaiah 54:17)
- He will always love you. (Jeremiah 31:3)
There will be more green pastures in your life than barren places. God has prepared some green bountiful places for you this year. Rejoice in His abundance. He is a good Father. He is a good Shepherd.
“We are His people who live in His pasture. God never lets his pasture get barren. He knows how to care for you.”
Take a moment to thank God for His promises over your life. Thank Him for his provision and protection over you. What is God saying to you through Psalm 100:3? How does this apply to your life or circumstances?
