I hate thinking of myself as a sheep in a flock. Really? Me? Yes, me! Thank you God. If you are one of the sheep not in the fold He's got you covered too.

John 10:14-16
I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.

We need as many fathers like King David as we can get.

1 Kings 2:1-3
Now the days of David drew near that he should die, and he charged Solomon his son, saying:
“I go the way of all the earth; be strong, therefore, and prove yourself a man.
And keep the charge of the Lord your God: to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His judgments, and His testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn;

Are you tired of always feeling empty? Your God-sized void can be filled. It is a red letter promise.

John 7:37-38
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Water spilled. Irretrievable right? Not with God.

2 Samuel 14:14
We must all die; we are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God will not take away life, and he devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast.

Religions just don't get it. Even the Christian religion has trouble. It is not about dogma or rituals or rules. It's about following God. "He who made me well said to me..." just listen and do it, nothing else matters.

John 5:8-11
Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”
And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.
The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, “It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.”
He answered them, “He who made me well said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’”

What's your battle? I couldn't fight mine alone, I cried aloud. He saved me.

Psalm 55:16-18
As for me, I will call upon God,
And the Lord shall save me.
Evening and morning and at noon
I will pray, and cry aloud,
And He shall hear my voice.
He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me,
For there were many against me.

Would you recognize him? The risen Christ walked and talked with Peter but Peter didn't even know it was Jesus until his eyes were opened. Your eyes can be opened too. Expect Him at your table.

Luke 24:30-31
Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.
Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

No fear, no turning aside, no more empty things. Even if you have been wicked, the Lord will not forsake you.

1 Samuel 12:20-22
Then Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.
And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing.
For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people.

This beautiful verse stems from Ruth's refusal to leave her mother-in-law. Because of that decision she has the honor of being the great-grandmother of David, and thus part of Christ's genealogy? It's amazing what doing the right thing at the right time can mean to the world.

Ruth 1:16-17
But Ruth said:
“Entreat me not to leave you,
Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.
Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me.”
