Psalm 100

1 Chapter: Psalm 100

1 Verse:
Verse 3. Know that the LORD Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

1 Prayer: Father, You are God and You are good. Why do I keep trying to be sovereign god of my own life? You are the one who made me. I belong to You. Forgive me for taking upon myself the responsibilities reserved for You as my Creator and God. Help me to live humbly, as a sheep of Your pasture, as one of Your people. Today I am so tempted to think I must "make myself" do this or that, or "make myself" be this or that. And the truth is, it is You Who have made me. All I really have to do is be Yours. Thank You for making it a reality through the blood of Jesus, the Great and Good Shepherd of Your sheep. You've bought me back into Your pasture. Please help keep me from straying.
