Key: The job of a shepherd is to oversee to the welfare of the sheep in his care while the responsibility of a sheep is to stay under the leadership of the shepherd. If a sheep strays from the fold such a sheep has exposed itself to the dangers (hunger, lack, attacks, etc) the shepherd was protecting it from. For God to continue to be who we want Him to be – our Shepherd, we also must stay under His cover, there lies our everything.

 

Prayer: In Jesus name, I constantly remain in God and I don’t lack a thing.
