He Guides Us

Shepherd your people with your staff.

Micah 7:14
He guides us. He provides for us. He protects us from all forms of evil. If we wander, he seeks us out and brings us back. If we are broken, he binds us up. If we are wounded, he heals according to his own Word. The sheep is an animal of many diseases and many needs and so the Christian is an individual of many sins and many infirmities. But as the shepherd endeavors to meet all the needs of his flock, so our Lord Jesus succors all the blood-bought company in all their needs.
 Charles Spurgeon (1865)

The sheep follow him because they know his voice.
 John 10:4
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Lord Jesus Christ, our good shepherd, in the waters of baptism you give us birth, and at your table you nourish us with heavenly food. In your goodness and mercy, lead us along safe paths, beyond the terrors of evil and death, to the house of the Lord where we may rest securely in you forever.
