I first saw this picture at my son and daughter-in-law’s home. The story it painted drew me in and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It spoke of such tenderness and beauty, but mostly rescue.
I have had to be rescued from certain situations in my life. Things that I had no control of and things I did. But Christ in his mercy sought after me and rescued me! I am that lamb laying across his shoulders. One he searched for and found and brought to safety.
My life was like a blazing fire and Christ ran into the flames, found me and carried me out of the danger and into calmness.
He is my Shepherd, I want only him. He leads me in peace so I can be healed. He guides me into uprightness to bring him glory. He is beside me in darkness and evil, I will not fear it for he protects and comforts me through it. His grace and mercy is ever before me. I will trust him and dwell in his love all my days.
“Christ rescued me because he delights in me.” Psalm 18:19
What do you need to be rescued from today? I pray you allow Jesus to begin to recover that which was lost and broken, so healing can take place in your heart. Understand that this is his desire.
