As I was looking back at this blog, I searched the post to see if I had ever written on Jesus as our Shepherd or Leader and I couldn’t find any. What a huge oversight on my part. The thing is that we should never look to ourselves on how to live a godly life; or how we should handle any of life’s circustances, but we should be looking toward the Father. We should rely upon Jesus for his direction and leadership in our lives.
It is not until you realize how much you need Jesus’ guidance and leadership in your lives, you will never truly make the right decision. We shouldn’t look at what we think or listen to our emotions, but look to what God tells us. He is a holy, righteous Father. He is Almighty with great wisdom and strength. He is all knowing. He is the great Shepherd.
Jesus can lead you into the way of righteousness and help you receive salvation. He can help you in your daily lives. He can help you have a closer walk with the Heavenly Father. Trust in Jesus and let him lead your life.
Hebrews 13:20,21-Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
