All their concerns are upon His heart!

Grace Gems Whiteby Grace Gems

Letters of William Romaine, 1714-1795

His redeemed people are the object of His special care. They are all . . . bought with His blood, quickened by His Spirit, kept by His power, and blessed with His love.

All their concerns are upon His heart. His eyes are upon them. He sees His people with perfect delight, and they shall lack nothing good that He has to give. He is managing all things temporal and spiritual for their good.

He does not, He cannot, make one mistake in His government; no, not the least. He does all things well. He is wisdom, He is love, He is omnipotence itself.

Infinite wisdom directs His love and sets it to work. Being Almighty, He makes all things work together for the best to His dear people.

My sheep!

James Smithby James Smith

“My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish–ever!
No one will snatch them out of My hand!” John 10:27-28

All of Christ’s sheep know Him, love Him and follow Him.
They all somewhat possess His disposition: He was meek and humble in heart.

Are you one of Christ’s sheep? Are you following after the Good Shepherd?
If so, He will lead you, feed you, protect you and save you.
Your person, life, comforts, and eternal safety–are committed to His care.

He loved His sheep more than His own life–He laid down His life for them!

He searches and seeks out His sheep wherever they stray.

He feeds His flock. He cares for His sheep more than for all the world beside. He feeds them in the most suitable pasture, and leads them in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

O view Jesus as your Shepherd! Expect Him to lead you, feed you, enfold you and present you to His Father with exceeding joy. Cleave to Him; let nothing tempt you to leave His feet, His flock or His fold. He will never leave you–nor will He ever forsake you.

“He will feed His flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in His arms, holding them close to His heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young!” Isaiah 40:11
