Listen to today’s devo!

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27)

From the beginning of time, the world has been trying to find the secret formula to some of life’s toughest questions: Who am I? What’s the meaning of life? Why am I here? From every period of history, all over the globe, human beings have attempted to answer those questions.

In John 10:14, Jesus declared, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.” The Good Shepherd knows his sheep and they know his voice and follow him. In this world, many things vie for our attention. Family, business, friends—all have a voice in our lives. Popular culture, trending fads, and social pressures all speak to our lives, telling us how to live or what to pursue. The world will say you need “this” to be happy or “that” to be fulfilled. In the midst of all the clamor, we have a Savior who calls out to us. As the Good Shepherd, he guides and directs our paths. And as his sheep, we should listen to his voice.

Jesus knows you and knows how to care and provide for you. He understands your needs and hears your cries. Once the sheep see the care and love of the shepherd, they follow him. Jesus knows you and cares for you. Listen to his voice and follow him; he will answer life’s greatest questions.

Quiet your heart before God and hear what he has to say.
