The Mouse Swallower

A biology professor kept a rattlesnake caged in his laboratory. Whenever he fed it in front of his class, the students watched with fascination. One day he said, “I find it interesting that my snake gets more attention than I do.” “You'd get more attention,” said a freshman, “if you swallowed a mouse.” If we read Psalm 23:1, we realize that we do not have to swallow a mouse to get God’s attention.

The Psalmist boldly declared, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” When we ask the Lord to become our Shepherd, our personal Saviour, we enter into a personal relationship with Him and life changes. It is like the small child, who, when quoting this verse said, “The Lord is my shepherd, I have all that I need.” The Great Shepherd has given us His Word that He will give us all that we need – beginning with His attention to the details of our life. As we place ourselves under His care, we have His Word that His “goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives” and someday we will dwell in His house forever.

Prayer: It is good, Father, to know that we have Your attention, and that nothing in our lives escapes Your sight. Fill my life with Your grace and goodness, Your presence and power: in Christ’s name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Psalm 23:1,6
