In this day in a world overflowing with false teachings it is imperative that we stay close to our Shepherd. It is the responsibility of the shepherd to take care of and protect the sheep.
Jesus, in His own words, talks about this.
John 10:11,14 CSB
 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
 "I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and my own know me”
Jesus cautions us to be watchful for false teachers.
Matthew 7:15 CSB
"Be on your guard against false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves.”
As we draw closer to our Shepherd He will watch over us. He will protect us. He will even carry us at times.
On our journey we will encounter trials, temptations, heartache, maybe even health, emotional and mental health issues. The enemy will be there to whisper negative things into your life. That is what he does.
When you find yourself in a situation like this look to Jesus, the Great Shepherd. Draw near to Him. In fact, stay near to Him. Make it a lifestyle. When you do this you will walk and live in victory - His victory.
Until next time...enjoy the journey,
