One of the thoughts of faith that gives the most hope is to know that we belong to God. He has made us. We are His. We are His creation. We are His.
That just gives me a great deal of hope and peace. To know that know matter what happens in my life, to know that no matter what happens in the world, we belong to God. We are His. We are the sheep of His pasture.
Listen to what the Word says today in Ezekiel 34:30-31:
And they shall know that I am the Lord their God with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Lord God. And you are my sheep, human sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Lord God.”
Sheep are almost totally dependent on the shepherd. They can’t do much for themselves. The shepherd leads them. The shepherd guides them. The shepherd protects them. They follow the shepherds voice, and in that, they are safe.
Today, you are God’s. You belong to Him. Think about that in your work, in your play, in coming, in your going. You are His. You belong to Him. He has made you.
He delights in you. He protects you. He cares for you. He gave His son for you. He longs to know you. He longs to give you life.
No matter what happens today; good or bad, nothing will take that away. You belong to God. Rest in that today. Rejoice in that today.
There’s a verse in 1 Peter that says, “once you were no people, but now you are the people of God.” That’s who you are. You belong to Him.
The source of you life don’t come for your work, your play, your hobbies, the economy, politics, sports, or anything else. Those things can be up or down; good or bad.
The source of your life comes from this one thing that is always good and always true. You belong to God. You are His. You are the sheep of His pasture.
Today, remember who you. Today, remember who’s you are. Are you God’s
