Despite Peter swearing he would lay down his life for his friend and teacher, neither he nor any of the disciples could follow Yeshua unto death that night. That aspect of their rabbi’s nature they had still yet to behold. It was that which was heard in the cry of John the Baptist, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29).

We can be sure the Father is always speaking to his children, but the wilderness of life can have a polarizing effect on our ability to hear. The vast, uninhabited land before us, fraught with trials and stretches of lean, waterless tracts, can make us forget the miracle of our deliverance and drown our shepherd’s voice in the roar of our fears, the grumbling of our bellies or the murmurings of our discontented hearts. Yet that same wilderness has the ability to amplify our shepherd’s voice.

My soul has a shepherd. It’s a reality that once evoked quaint, pastoral scenes of doting, white sheep grazing contentedly behind their calm, patient shepherd.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-5 ESV)
