Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 10

Day 223


For you were like sheep going astray,

but now you have returned to

the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

1 Peter 2:25

My child, look around you. Everywhere you go, I have provided green pastures for your food and restoration. I've outlined your boundaries and enclosed you all about with My love. At the entrance I've placed My gate, so that no one can touch you without first dealing with Me. I am your Shepherd and the Overseer of your soul.  No wolf in sheep's clothing can destroy you. You are safe in My presence. Happy grazing!

Lord, I can never stray farther than Your arms can reach. You are the Overseer of my soul, standing guard and keeping watch like a Shepherd over His sheep. You know the number of Your flock, and You call each of us by name. Why would I want to leave Your lush pastures? How precious You are, Lord.


Our Overseer sees over us, around us, behind us, and through us—and loves us anyway.
