Devotion for Friday after Lent 4

“For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.” ~ Ezekiel 34:11-12

The Lord God—the omniscient, omnipresent, almighty, sovereign, holy ruler of the universe; the Alpha and the Omega—seeks His scattered sheep. He doesn’t leave this to the angels or heavenly host or to men, but He seeks us, calls our name, and draws us to Him. We may think we found God, but He found us first.

Thank You, Holy Triune God, for calling my name and drawing me to You. Thank You that the Son came to earth and paid the penalty for my sins. Thank You that the Holy Spirit dwells within me. Thank You that the Father loves me beyond my imagination. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
