‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”
This verse made us think of Psalm 23. There are many times when we walk through valleys that seem dark and full of death. Our world is so very broken and so are we. Yet, we are never alone in those times, Jesus is the Good Shepherd who cares so deeply for His sheep. In these verses from Revelation we are also reminded that Jesus is the Lamb, the spotless lamb who was the sacrifice for all. We need not fear death or pain, because the Lamb at the centre of the throne is our shepherd and he brings us the living water we need. So, if you are walking through a valley at this moment, rest in the hands of Jesus, the good shepherd and know and trust that all tears will be wiped away, and all pain will cease!
PRAYER: Jesus, thank you that you are the Good Shepherd who laid down your life for me. As I walk through the valleys of my life help me to lift my eyes up to you, my help and my shepherd. Thank you that you are with me, and you know everything I am going through, because you have lived this life too. Amen.
