<Yesterday    Tomorrow>

Today God says:
 "I am your Shepherd".

He promises me:
  "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters". (Ps. 23:1,2)

My response to the word:
  Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I will never lack any good thing. He will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. He will lead me, guide me, nurture me, protect me, keep me, feed me, and love me. Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd of my life.

My prayer:
  Lord, you are my Shepherd. I am so happy to be a sheep in your flock. Thank you for guiding me, protecting me, and feeding me. Thank you for giving your life for me.

Today's scriptures:
 "The Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep". (John 10:11 GW) "My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus". (Phil. 4:19 GW) "The God of peace brought the great shepherd of the sheep, our Lord Jesus, back to life through the blood of an eternal promise". (Heb. 13:20 GW)  

Quote for today:
If we long to keep His statutes He will keep us; yea, His grace will keep us keeping His law. (Charles Spurgeon)
