Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name I thank You for Jesus giving His life for my salvation and being my Good Shepherd. In John 10:11, Jesus said: “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”
It is a great blessing to know that after accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior, I belong to You now and for eternity. I have access to all the benefits for living the life that You have laid out in Your Word (Bible).
You also want to watch over me with love and protection just as a shepherd does for his sheep. As a child of Yours, direct me to be able to clearly listen to Your voice just as sheep listen to the voice of their shepherd. John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
I am thankful that just like a shepherd supplies all of the needs of his sheep, You promise to supply all my needs according to the plan You have laid out for me in the present and the future. Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
It is such a peaceful thought to know that when this life is over and finished with all its sickness, pain, and suffering that I will be dwelling in Your house (Heaven) for eternity. There is no greater joy on this earth to think about than Psalm 23:6b “And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
To You be the Glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
