Every person who tries to live life on their terms will soon discover they're just like sheep — spiritually defenseless, directionless, and dumb. Jesus promises He is present, personal and active in our lives if we hear His voice and let him lead us.
Resting comes first in our relationship with God — not service, sacrifice, or religious works. God designed us to accomplish our work from a place of rest, with the help of daily, weekly, and yearly rhythms of rest. Learn why resting in God and enjoying Him is the only way to restore our souls.
Jesus is not a cowboy who drives us with a whip. He's a good shepherd who leads us with love. We can go our own way, or we can follow Him down the path of righteousness.

Life is a series of mountaintop experiences and valley seasons. As easy as it is to declare, “Thank you, God!” on the mountaintop, it’s also easy to wonder, “Where are you, God?” in the valley.

The Lord prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies. At the table, we find rest and refreshment. But if we're not careful, the enemy will pull up a seat at this table meant your Shepherd and you. Don't be fooled by the enemy's smooth talking, he is only there to kill, steal, and destroy. Has your table of two become a table of three? Watch now to discover if the enemy is at your table.
You can be certain that God is good, He loves you, He keeps His promises, and that Jesus is alive! You can also be certain that if you follow the Good Shepherd, good things will follow you.
