What a Shepherd! Part Two

I will make with them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land, so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield its increase, and they shall be secure in their land, and none shall make them afraid. And I will provide for them. And they shall know that I am the Lord their God with them, and that they 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.” Ezekiel 34:25-27,28,31

The Shepherd Who seeks and saves is He Who settles and satisfies. When in Him we live and move and have our being, the places we live and work and go are affected. He showers us with blessing so we can be a blessing- light unto light, rest unto peace, healing unto reconciliation and unity, strength unto encouragement, satisfaction unto nourishment for others. He gives in season- incrementally- for the need, always appropriate and enough, and we bear fruit for seasons and situations where He places us. (Acts 17:28)

Good Shepherd, You have given so much. May I, out of overflow of thankfulness, be a shower of blessing to all I encounter, that they may know You are the Lord God.
