God our Creator and our Shepherd


Psalm 100:3:  Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

The God who created creation is our God.  There is none else who is worthy of all worship and honour.  We should not be ignorant of this one thing that whoever has created us owns us.  He has the right over us.  We are at His disposal.  We made nothing, we created nothing.  We are His people and also the sheep of His pasture.  He feeds us and takes care of us like how a shepherd would His flock.

We are God’s priced possession.  When He created man, he was created in God’s own image.  We are the masterpiece of the Great Creator.  He owns all rights to deal with us how He wishes.  He loved us so much that He gave His very life for us as a ransom, just like how a good shepherd would die for his sheep.  We cannot do anything on our own. We cannot create ourselves.  He created us out of nothing, He breathed life into a being made of mud. We breathe His life.  We can do nothing but worship Him and be thankful to Him throughout our life.  He is Jehovah Jireh, our provider.  Just like how a shepherd leads his flock to good pasture and clear water, God also would take care of our everyday needs.  The sheep normally know their master’s voice by being around him always.  In the same way, we too will get accustomed to the voice of God if we constantly be with God and learn from His word and feed on it.

Our God is great, He is matchless, and worthy of all praises.  He owns us and we owe our life to Him.  Are we willing to obey and follow Him?
