God Watches Over Me Jealously
“But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, and careth not for the sheep.”
John 10:12-13 (KJV)
The hireling flees, because he is a hireling and cares not for the sheep.
We live in a world that is self-centred. It seems as if everyone needs to find out how to survive on their own. There are many who are even willing to sacrifice others for their own survival. Notice that when your life is in the hands of a hireling, when troubles come he will abandon you. Why? It is because you don’t belong to him. He is a hireling. Whatever relationship he has with you is formed from the benefit he is getting from looking after you. But when trouble strikes, he will not risk himself for your sake.
This situation is like when you have a caregiver for your children; when disaster strikes, perhaps it is a fire or a flood, the caregiver will momentarily forget your child and think of saving his own life. It is a natural reflex. Even on a plane you are told repeatedly in the case of an emergency to first secure yourself with an oxygen mask before helping a child. But thank God your Good Shepherd, Jesus, knows you belong to Him. So He will never jump ship during the storms in your life.
He is not threatened by the storms of life. The challenges of life do not get to Him. He is with you every step of the way, and you are a priority to Him. He is committed to you, so He will bring you out of every storm. No matter what you are facing, fear not. Put your life in His hands in full confidence that He knows just what to do. You belong to Him, and He watches over you jealously.
2 Thessalonians 2
Thank You Jesus!
