Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
After many thousands of people gathered, Jesus tells his disciples not to worry or be anxious and Father would provide a place happily in his kingdom. Little flock is referenced in Ezekiel. 34:11-24 to remind that GOD is the good shepherd of the faithful.
We learn the following from today’s verse
We all are like sheep… , a helpless, very dependent and lacking direction
Jesus is our good shepherd.
We have a Father in God and we are part of a family
Our Father is good and generous and it makes him happy to give us His kingdom.
Good God is with us. He will take care of our needs (Philippians 4:6).
Heavenly Father, thanks for this day. I know you hear me, Father, when I bring my concerns to you. You care about what is going on in my life, and I know you want to give me a clear, sound mind. Forgive me when I allow anxious thoughts to cloud my thinking. Help me to take my anxieties to you in every circumstance, believing you will intervene and work out your eternal purposes. Give me a thankful heart. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
