9 You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!” 10 See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. 11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
We should shout with joy that we have a powerful, mighty God! But along with being an all-powerful, omnipotent God, He is a loving God who cares for each one of us. He protects us from harm.
Thank you Lord for your love and protection. We need You in our lives. Sometimes we don’t praise You enough. Without You, we would be nothing. Forgive us for taking You for granted at times. We need to thank you every day for our very lives. Guide us in the direction you want us to go. Thank You especially for giving us Jesus. Help us to be like Him. Amen.
