Please Him not your fears

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)

Don’t focus on the thief but on Jesus. 

Don’t be fear driven but life driven. 

Life is stolen when you fear. 

Driven by a need to protect yourself. 

He comes to reassure. 

He is the reassurance. 

Enter through Him and Him alone. 

In Him is safety. 

He is where your life begins. 

Not only on the day you were born but everyday. 

Let Him flood you with His peace and His joy. 

By surrounding yourself with His presence. 

His presence is where you surround yourself with His thoughts. 

Allow yourself to trust in Him. 

Rather than the thief. 

The thief is a very real and present danger. 

He lurks around. 

Seeing who he can deceive. 

Yet He has the answer. 

Don’t look or listen to the thief. 

Let your focus be on Him. 

On Him alone. 

He is the greater one. 

He is the Creator. 

He is the good shepherd. 

Listen to Him, look to Him. 

Seek to please Him not serve your fears.

Enjoy Him now

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. (John 10:9)

This isn’t about hell.

This isn’t even about eternal life.

It is about life.

His life in you.

You think it is something to come.

Maybe when you die.

But hope is for now, not then.

He is your hope.

He is your joy.

Share in it as part of your inheritance.

Saved from misery.

Saved from hopelessness.

Saved from yourself.

Hell bent on self destruction.

He others you life.

In all its wonderful glory.

Greater and better than you can ever imagine.

But you will never find out.

Unless you pass through Him.

He is the way, the gate.

Only thorough Him.

Not by your efforts.

Or clever strategy.

There is nothing manmade about this.

It is His plan and purpose for you.

To live full, fruitful lives.

To be blessed and be a blessing to others.

That is His heart.

Here and now.

Not then and later.

Enjoy Him now.

Listen to Him

All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. (John 10:8)

Strong words.

What does He mean?

Who is He talking about?

Have others claimed to be the messiah?

The people wanted a solution.

Someone to lead them out of bondage.

To be their king again.

They wanted independence.

They wanted freedom.

But everyone who came to lead them out.

Was still just the same.

With no hope.

With no possibilities.

Only more of the same.

He is offering real freedom.

Freedom for everyone.

From tyranny.

From bondage.

From sin.

He does not offer false hope.

It is real and it is tangible.

You have nothing to fear.

He won’t fleece you.

Listen to Him.

Not the arguments.

It will be worth it

When He has brought out all His own, He goes on ahead of them, and His sheep follow him because they know His voice. (John 10:4) 

Are you with Him?

Are you one of His own?

Follow His voice. 

Follow Him. 

He knows your heart. 

He knows its condition. 

Whether you are truly in love with Him. 

Passionate about what He is passionate about. 

He is passionate about you. 

He knows you. 

He knows those who are His. 

Who have surrendered their hearts fully to Him. 

No compromise. 

No conditions. 

He wants His own. 

Those who know and love Him. 

He knows your heart. 

He can see what your motives are. 

Whether they are pure or corrupted. 

He wants to bring healing and health to your heart. 

He wants your heart to be full of light and life. 

Let His light expose the dark regions of your heart. 

He knows they are there. 

But you have to be brave to allow Him. 

It won’t be pleasant. 

Putting it off won’t help. 

But the end result will be worth it. 

Remember He does care. 

He cares more than you do. 

You may be willing to live with second best. 

He isn’t.

His voice

The gatekeeper opens the gate for Him, and the sheep listen to His voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. (John 10:3)

He knows you.

Do you know Him?

There is only one shepherd.

Follow Him.

The only one.

Can you hear His voice?

Listen carefully.

He is speaking to you.

Softly and yet clearly.

Hear His voice.

It will comfort you.

It will encourage you.

More than you think.

Don’t be afraid to draw close He won’t shout at you.

His voice will soothe your soul.

Embrace Him

The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. (John 10:2)

He alone is the One.

The one true Shepherd.

He will show you the way.

He will guide and help you.

He is for you.

All the way, all the time.

He has laid down His life for you.

He never stops loving you.

He never stops, full stop.

His care is greater than any other.

Run to Him.

Throw yourself into His arms and embrace Him.

He constantly thinks about you.

Night and day He watches over you.

Like a shepherd guarding his sheep.

We are all His sheep.

Even if we have aspirations to be the shepherd.

His sheep know His voice.

They recognise it every time.

They see Him coming.

They know it is Him.

Don’t replace Him with a cardboard cutout.

One of your own making and design.

The end of all things is Him

“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. (John 10:1)

Don’t take shortcuts.

Don’t think it doesn’t matter.

His church matters.

His sheep matter.

Their welfare is paramount.

That they know the true Shepherd.

You cannot get to be an under-shepherd by any others means.

You either are under His discipleship or you are not.

Do not usurp His sheep from under Him.

His sheep need to hear His voice.

They need to hear Him.

They need to know Him.

Coercing is not His way.

Controlling is not His way.

Manipulating is not His way.

Trust is the only way.

It is His way and that is the only way.

The end does not justify the means.

For the end of all things is Him.

He cannot fail you

In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. (Matthew 18:14)

He is the true desire of your heart.

Your true desire, full stop.

He will satisfy you with good things.

With a desire for all that is good.

He wishes none that would perish.

For He has given life to all.

That you might live a full and satisfied life.

This is His desire.

This is what He longs for.

That His creation knows Him.

Knows and experiences His love.

It is so real and more powerful than anything.

Believe in Him.

Trust in Him.

For He will not fail you.

He cannot fail you.

But you can doubt.

You may doubt His love.

And question the reality of His heart.

Challenging how passionate He is towards you.

But nothing compares to the love He has for you.

Taste and see, there is no other way.

It always does

And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.  (Matthew 18:13)

You will satisfy Him.

The longing of His heart.

To have a people of His own.

Who don’t serve their own interests.

Who look out for others.

Seeking their needs.

Loving with a passion.

Full of love for Him.

Knowing His heart.

Yet He still seeks them.

To find a people after His own heart.

Are you one?

Do you seek Him with all of your being?

In your response make your spirit strong.

It will soar on the wings of eagles.

High and lofty.

You will see far and wide.

You will see His purposes.

Because what He desires is a people to call His own.

A people who will call on Him.

A people that He can dwell amongst.

Who will know His joy.

He will bring the stragglers back.

He will bring the disenfranchised back to the fold.

They will be astounded at the extent of His grace.

Staggered by His love, His goodness and the sound of His joy.

It will be heard throughout heaven and across the earth.

There will be no sound like it.

The sound of His joy.

People will know.

They will see and they will shudder.

Shocked by the magnitude of His goodness.

It will overflow to so many.

It always does and it always will.

Satisfied and filled

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?  (Matthew 18:12)

He will always bring you back.

For He is your shepherd but are you willing?

He doesn’t coerce nor force.

You are His child.

Sheep of His flock.

This is to His glory, joy and delight that you enjoy the pasture He leads you to.

Don’t wander off.

He will have to leave the others and go looking for you.

Time is wasted.

You are meant to be productive.

Not putting yourself in danger.

This is the time to stay close to Him.

Not just following the herd.

Nor doing your own thing.

Be part of the herd.

But let Him be your shepherd.

Your protector.

He is always for you.

Willing to look after you and provide.

Stay in the pasture that He gives you.

The other grass looks greener from a distance.

But it is fraught with dangers.

Don’t expect to escape hurt.

There is pain and loneliness.

Don’t avoid the truth.

The truth is meant to keep you safe.

Free from harm.

There is enough for you here.

To satisfy you.

Everything else can look so inviting.

Looking more interesting or exciting.

Whatever it is only He can truly satisfy.

You will go hungry.

You will be thirsty.

But He will satisfy both.

Fulfilling you and filling you.
