RUN/REST Day 29
God’s desire is that we run towards a life better than ordinary.
Today, you can rest knowing that God is caring for us like a good shepherd cares for their sheep.
📖 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: John 10:11-18
If Jesus is comparing himself to a shepherd in these verses, who are the sheep?
Jesus is the ultimate shepherd. He takes care of his sheep and lays down his life for them. That means that he looks out for us, watches over us, protects us, and keeps us from harm. He also shows us where to go, leads and guides us to the places he knows are best for us. Sometimes wondering about our next step can cause anxiety and stress. Does believing in Jesus as the good shepherd ease your anxiety or lower your stress level?
Maybe you’re in a place where it feels like knowing this about Jesus isn’t helping your stress and anxiety. That’s okay. Find a trusted adult or a trusted friend that you can pray with and talk to about this. Ask them to pray that you would trust Jesus as the good shepherd, caring for you, leading you, and guiding you.
