S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord.
The Prophets that surrounded Ezekiel in his day were so phony that God became weary of them. He said, I myself am going to take care of My people and provide them with a place of rest.
Have you ever been in a situation where you are the best at what you do, but your responsibilities are so vast that you hire other people to do what you do best? I know that is a scenario that has been a reality in my life a number of times. Sometimes I’ve noticed that one of my workers was doing a lesser job than I knew I could do myself, and I had to ask them to move on. That’s not quite the metaphor to describe this verse, but indeed the Lord was fed up with half-hearted, lousy spiritual leadership and said, “I’ll shepherd My own people and help them rest.” Whether you like it or not … “Sometimes You Have To Do It Yourself.”
I thank You that You are my shepherd and that NO ONE has taken care of me as good as You. Thank You for doing it Yourself! Amen
