    'Intentional Life' by Pastor Vern

    March 9, 2018

    Psalm 23: 1-6                                 

    The Lord is my shepherd

    • Intentional decision to align my life to follow
    • Intentional decision to choose to follow Jesus
    • Intentional decision to be obedient to the Shepherd of my life

     

    1 Peter 5:7 ‘Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you’

    Jesus Always – March 5

    I am taking care of you. Sometime you feel alone and vulnerable – exposed to the “elements” of a fallen world. When you are feeling this way, stop and remind yourself, “Jesus is taking care of me.” This reminder can comfort you and help you relax. It draws you back from obsessing about the future, trying to figure out and orchestrate what will happen’

    • I shall not want – daily concerns that could pre-occupy my life

    • What we will eat
    • Where we will sleep – what next?
    • Safe place to rest
    • He is committed to restore or build us up
    • Seeks the best for our holistic health

    2 Daily guidance – vrs 3    

    • Sets the direction – where we need to head
    • Sets the pace – how fast we need to be moving
      • Slows us down when our pace is unhealthy
      • Calms us when we get worked up
      • Talks to us in the journey
      • Our challenge is to stay close enough to hear His voice

    3 Daily presence – vrs 4 - 5     

    • Protects us when we face adversity – stands between us and every challenge
    • Is with us through tough times
    • Is with us when we feel threatened
    • He is always on guard and never surprised at what is coming
    • Anoints us with fresh healing for the next task or moments of the journey

    4 Daily promise – vrs 6     

    • Helps us to be daily aware of the promise of heaven
    • Gives us hope as we face the unknown – optimistic future
    • Assures us of our eternal home and destination

    APPLICATION

    • Following the Good Shepherd is a game changer
    • The Good Shepherd relieves me from the pressure of obsessing about the future
    •  I can relax with the Good Shepherd and anticipate my eternal home – ‘home sick’
