Psalm 100:3  Know that the Lord, He is God! It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Know this believer… Know that the LORD, Yahweh, is God, Elohim.  This is a command from God to us through the writings of David.  In other words, know that, Yahweh, the constant, independent, absolute, eternal, uncreated God that never changes, and who does whatever He pleases for your good, He delights in His creation being dependent upon Him as Elohim – The Shepherding God.  Know that He made us specifically and created us as His property, very much like His very own sheep in His pasture of overwhelming provision.  Our personal and relational Yahweh God is a caring Shepherd who guides us by His wisdom and tends us as sheep, who are in His tender care, feeding us perfectly physically and spiritually from His loving provision as our Shepherd.  Know this, ponder this, rest upon this, dwell on this, the uncreated creator God lovingly creates us and tends us like a caring shepherd does His sheep.  Let knowing this impact our showing this to a world who is absent of this delightful, joy creating promise.

Father God, You are our caring Shepherd who knows our every path today as Your sheep.  Lord, please make us sensitive to Your strong presence as our Shepherd as You perfectly guide us and provide for us.  Lord, You always have our best interests in Your hand.  Remind us of this daily as you call us to KNOW You as our Shepherding Creator through Your Son, Jesus Christ, Who is our Good Shepherd that has laid down His life for us, being our sacrificial Shepherd.
