That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.
Good Morning Father!
What a glorious morning to be with You! The air is clean and fresh, the day holds new promises and I am with You. It is such an adventure to be Your child!
Your Word this morning is so great to think on.
To think that You told shepherds in the fields about Your Son, is so great. He would become the Shepherd for many, taking care of us so well.
When Your angels appear in Your Word, they are always so careful to say ‘don’t be afraid’. It must have been such a bright sight to see them in the dark sky. The shepherds must have really wondered about what was happening.
What I love the most about them, Father, is the fact that they believed, period. They didn’t try to analyze the situation, or try to make an intelligent discovery, they just believed and went to see Your Son.
I want to come to You that way, excited and anticipating the day with You. To let You lead me on exciting discoveries. Then, to sit with You tonight and talk about the day. Thank You for Your shepherds. Thank You, for my Shepherd.
