The Lord Knows You

The Lord knows you. You can trust Him. He's your Shepherd. He will lead you as one of His sheep. Jesus said, "I am the good Shepherd and I know my sheep" (John 10:14). The shepherd and sheep analogy helps you understand how the Lord knows you. He knows who you are and where you are. He knows your hurts and needs. He is the good Shepherd who cares for you.

Jesus leads you in the right path. Sheep have no sense of direction. They must be led by the shepherd. Jesus leads you when you don't understand. He finds you, when you go astray. Faith in your Shepherd to lead your life is necessary, when you cannot understand what is ahead. Trust Him.

Jesus knows your needs. A good shepherd leads his sheep to green pastures for food and rest. He leads them by still waters for peace and security. He understands the needs of his sheep. Jesus cares about your needs. He always cares for you.

Jesus knows you by name. Shepherds in days of old gave each one of their sheep a name. He called them by name. It was a personal relationship. Jesus knows you better than you know yourself. In your relationship with Jesus, all you need to do is follow Him. Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27).
