Verses that inspire


Recently I heard someone in the news using an analogy comparing humans and sheep. Of course, my thoughts went right to the Psalms . . .
Know that the Lord is God.    It is he who made us, and we are his;    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 100:3)
Come, let us bow down in worship,    let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;for he is our God    and we are the people of his pasture,
    the flock under his care. . .  (Psalm 95:6-7a)
He knows we are prone to go astray, and He will search for us, rescue us, and bring us back to the comfort and care that only He can provide.

In the wisdom of this world, one small sheep would be written off if it wandered away. But in God's way of thinking, it is more of a cause to celebrate when that one runaway is brought back, instead of celebrating the ninety-nine that were already safe in the fold.

Contemplate the compassion and love of our God today.

Have some verses inspired you lately? Leave us a comment and a verse if you will.

And yet, even when we do go astray, and He comes after us with loving arms, He promises this:
“As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 (NIV)
