"Faye's daily words of encouragement " # 45 Todays word Is: Sheep"

Definition of the word Sheep: A woolly ruminant animal, especially those domesticated for their fleece, flesh and hide. A sheep is a follower of God or a sheep in Jesus flock.

John chapter 21 - 16 : He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas,him yea,Lord; thou knoweth that I love thee, He saith unto him feed my sheep.

Psalms chapter 49 -14 : Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning,; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

Matthews chapter 7 - 15 : Beware of false prophet. which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Jeremiah chapter 12 - 3 : But thou, O Lord, knoweth me: thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee, pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare then for the day of slaughter.

John chgapter 10 - 2 : But he that enter in by the door is the shepard of the sheep.

Jesus is our Lord and Shepard and we're the sheep of his flock.  Where ever Jesus leads us we 're suppose to follow. Jesus will not lead his sheep astray.  Jesus is Shepard that controls of his flock of sheep.  He herds them and make sure that he doesn't lose even one.  What a good Shepard Jesus is , for feeding us the true word of ;God and watering us with the water of life, so we don't ever have to thirst again.

A Good Shepard counts his sheep and make sure they're are all there.  We are the sheep of his pasture, But Jesus warns us  of the ravenous wolves that will come in sheep's clothing, that will devour the sheep; so we must be on our watch and be prepare at all times to fight against the ferocious attack of the wolves of men.

      I love sheep. I collected all manner of sheepy-stuff for many years. This made me want to pull them all out and look at my little fluffy friends again! Isaiah 40 :11 is my favorite because it says He gently leads those that are with young. Considering I raised 5 lambs of my own, that meant alot!

      And he is the best shepherd there is! It's encouraging and uplifiting to know that there is someone we can truly look to that has himself suffered at the hands of other men, making him empthatic to our needs, frustrations, and problems. Thanks creativeone59.
