THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Yesterday, I was in the hospital recovering from an emergency surgery.
The old gall bladder was severely swollen and full of rocks!
That little incident got me to thinking about how God takes care
of us with His grace.
Jesus is the Master Shepherd.
He watches over and cares for His sheep!
1 A Psalm of praise.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
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.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
About 3 months ago, I went to the emergency room with severe gastritis.
Six weeks later, same story.
Then, two days ago -- same story.
I told the ER doctor this was the third time in about 3 months.
He immediately decided to look at the gall bladder.
Yup! That was it!
The doctor who did the surgery is a golfing buddy, and he told me, "Just a couple more days and that might have burst!"
You see, Jesus arranged the indicating factors.
And, the ER doctor figured it out.
We are "the sheep of His pasture!"
He watches over us and cares for us!
Sometimes, Jesus gives us a flat tire.
Ya know, that might keep us from being in a place where there's a bad wreck!
Sometimes, Jesus gives us painful body problems.
That might be an indicator to get checked!
Therefore, be "thankful unto Him, and bless His Name!"
"For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations."
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
