“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:11 NIV
I love the way the NIV translates this verse. Here is the care and guidance, the gentleness, the comfort, and the affection of our Beloved Savior Jesus. When you feel a drift, know that you are not…you are under His care and guidance. When you feel assaulted by the world, your temptations, your sin and failures, know that He is there to gather you in His arms and comfort you, holding you close to His heart. This is such a beautiful display of the love of our Shepherd for His flock. He knows who are His. Rest in His arms today dear Christian. Rest from your striving. Rest from your fears. Rest from your cares. Rest in His arms close to His heart.
