The Lord Looks for His Lost Sheep
"The Lord is my Shepherd". Many have heard those words at one time or another. But they are more than just words put together. The Lord is a shepherd of His people and He watches over them with a careful eye. He looks for those that are lost and wants to bring them back into His fold. If you are lost today, going through some tough times, or simply not feeling loved turn to the Lord and He will not forsake you. He is a loving God and wants to help those that believe on Him. Seek first the Kingdom of God and all other will follow. God will supply our needs according to His will, not ours. That is important to understand. That it is what is of Gods will that will happen and not of what we think that we need. For all things work for the good of His people and for the good of the Kingdom of God. Give praise to God no matter what situation you are in for it is for your good that you be where you are today. God takes us through valleys and over hills. You may be down in one of those valleys right now but keep your faith in God and He will put you on top of that hill in due time.
10: Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
11: For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12: How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13: And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
14: Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
