“For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” 1 Peter 2:25
It is pretty cold and has snowed where we live. The power goes off for long periods of time, so my husband keeps a fire going. There is nothing like a blazing fire is there? The kids have gone in and out today to play in this rare snow. When they come in, they are wet and freezing cold. Where do you think they go first? Right to the fire.
Maybe we have been spiritually out in the cold for way too long. Perhaps we have gone astray in our thinking and concluded that we know better than God. We can come up with all kinds of reasons to justify our thoughts, opinions, words and actions. I know I certainly have, but that does not change the truth. What do you say we come back to the warmth of our loving Shepherd, who truly knows how to take care of us? As far as I can tell, the storm will not be over until He returns and the best place for us to be is beside Him.
