Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”
The LORD JESUS, our Good Shepherd gave His life that we might live. And we, His sheep, hear His voice and respond to Him. Hearing and recognising the voice of our good, heavenly, caring Shepherd, comes from listening to His still, small voice attentively, hearing the Word of GOD repeatedly, and trusting the truth of all that He says – trusting the gracious words that proceed from the mouth of our good and great Shepherd, for He has promised that none shall pluck us out of the palm of His mighty hands. As sheep of His pasture, we must be receptive to His call. We must carefully listen to all He says and trust all that He does, even when we don’t understand. And we must rest in the assurance of His love, abide in His truth, and obediently follow Him all the days of our lives.
John 10:27 7
“My sheep hear my voice, and
I know them, and they follow me:”
Loving FATHER GOD, I was lost but You called me and found me. You gathered me into Your loving arms and led me into Your heavenly sheep-fold. Continue to speak to me, guard me and guide me, keep and protect me from all the perils and dangers of this life, for I delight and trust Your Word, and will follow You all the days of my life, continually praising You for Your loving kindness and gracious mercies. In JESUS’ most Holy Name! AMEN!
