Day 8 – Love – 2022

I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice. 

Ezekiel 34:15-16, NIV

The prophet Ezekiel brings “woes” against the shepherds of Israel that are described as “faithless,” “foolish” and “worthless.” The shepherds of Israel that didn’t provide individualized care were accused of taking a position of leadership to feed themselves rather than the flock of God’s people entrusted to them. God was not ambiguous about what he thought of these men. 

Like a shepherd, God protects and provides for his children. He heals our wounds and strengthens us when we are too weak to walk on our own. He always gives us safe pasture from the wolves that seek to destroy us, and he pursues us if we have lost our way. Our Shepherd is a faithful 

Prayer Guide:

  1. Reflect on how the Lord as the Good Shepherd has provided for you and ways he continues to provide for you. 
  2. Call on the Lord, thank him for his unwavering love and invite him to meet you today in big and small ways.
