Planning for the future is always a good thing to do… as long as we keep God in the mix! Today’s message centered around James’ warning for people not to make too many detailed plans without recognizing that God is the Author of our futures as well as considering the brevity of our lives here on earth. May we always yield our planning and preparation to His loving care.
What does it mean for the Lord to be our Shepherd? According to David in Psalm 23, it means that we shall never be in want of anything. We will be made to slow down, quiet down, and sit down. Our souls will be restored and whole, like they were designed to be from the beginning. We shall not fear evil or death – no matter what we’re facing. Many of us know the Psalm… Let’s make sure we know the Shepherd.
