When The Good Shepherd Speaks To Us

  When the Good Shepherd speaks to His own,

He never uses words of …

 despair, hopelessness, frustration, defeat, discouragement,

fear,confusion, or failure.

Instead, He gives His sheep words of…

Love, Hope, Rest, Victory, Peace, Power, Joy, Triumph and

His Corrections and Warnings are firm but are given

 Compassionately and in Love and

we Listen and Obey.

When we speak to The good Shepherd He responds, He does not ignore us or  consider  what we say as insignificant, we don’t have to plead for Him to answer us, or wonder why He doesn’t.

  Our Loving Shepherd  never leaves us feeling unwanted or unimportant, we are precious to Him and He values our friendship greatly.

We are not just a number, Our Shepherd knows our name, He chooses to need us and He is never to busy for us.

 Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
 
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
 
Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. 

  

 When Satan speaks to us, he condemns, falsely accuses, unjustly criticizes, belittles, slanders, ridicules,  attacks and lies to us… his words have a sharp evil cutting edge and can hurt deeply so we just ignore him.

Satan will  also tell us that we can do what God says not to, and that His guidelines are not for today, that it’s OK to disobey as long as we are happy but he knows it will lead to despair and fear and  if we believe him he  ignores us having achieved what he wanted…

Satan doesn’t care about us, he wants us to feel hurt, confused, not wanted or needed and so  he lies to us, tempts and tries us and we suffer, but as we still do not reject The Lord or do evil but instead come close to God seeking His help, then Satan having lost flees, he hates goodness. 

1 Peter 4:12-13  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:  But rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy
 
 1 Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
 
 James 1:12-14 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
 

Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  

1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
 
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

      Hi jesusmyjoy, I will indeed pray for you I feel for you very much having experienced Satan’s arrows causing doubts and testing me by trying to tempt me to do evil by my flesh response but as we put our evil flesh to death by choosing to walk in The fruit of The Spirit with His empowering, we will walk in God’s Freedom and Peace because Satan will flee.

      God only tests us with good and those things that strengthens our faith not with evil or suffering or hardship, He does not willingly afflict us or even willingly allow it but tolerates it not wanting us to perish. He knows we will experience it and He always helps us through it, I hope the Scriptures below will comfort you as they did me and also reminded me that God does not allow His Redeemed Children to perish but is patient as we are perfected in His Love.

    I work hard not to entertain anything Satan wants to say. What’s the point! God is gracious, kind and loving and I’d rather listen to Him any day.
    God Bless You!

      Hi Dei, so very True my friend but sadly Satan uses his people to hurt us and we do not always see the connection till they show their True colours, you know what I mean the wolves in sheep’s clothing but as you say if we are walking in Christ Jesus we don’t walk alone and regardless of what others do to us, they won’t have the Victory in the end.

      Paul and the early Christians were mostly Martyred but we will be with them and know Joy eternally in Heaven, the followers of Satan won’t unless they repent, sadly some are too far gone, they are already dead spiritually but some will listen before it’s too late, all those who haven’t rejected The Lord but have just been deceived.

      Hi Love, so True, we need to remember too Satan is also into mind games seeking to cause confusion to get a negative response from us, he also aims to make us feel insecure by presenting alternatives to following God’s guidelines but eventually what Satan offers is shown to be shallow and without substance or worth.

      Christian Love Anne.
