Psalm 95:6 (Pt.3)  Thought/Prayer:  His Pasture, His Hand.  Topics:  2 at end.

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

Here we are further told something about why we should worship, bow down and kneel before God:  “For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.”  It’s a rather interesting reason here, with sheep in his pasture and sheep “of his hand.”  Of course, farming and herding were well-known to people of the times of the Psalms. 

So we probably can understand grazing in God’s pastures as He provides for our lives.  Don’t we often, at meals, say grace to thank Him for His provision?  (And, admittedly, some of us “graze” all day long . . . snacking . . . ).  Yes, we may easily identify with being the people of God’s pasture.

But being the sheep of his hand?  Well, perhaps several thoughts come to mind.  Might a shepherd, or a little boy or girl in a sheepherder’s family, hand-feed a little lamb sometimes?  Maybe the mother ewe can’t provide, or such. 

But what may come to mind even more readily is one of the paintings of Jesus carrying the lost (and then found) lamb back to the flock.  He is painted in many ways . . . cuddling the lamb to his neck; draping it around his shoulders gripping its feet; carrying it on an arm.  But no matter the portrayal, the lost lamb is held by the hand of Jesus.  Are we not such ourselves?

The Lord Jesus wants to make us the sheep of His hand in the same way.  When we believe, we make Him our Shepherd, and He cares for us just as described in this verse.  When we picture ourselves being seen by Him in this light, it can move us.  He sees babies, children, and the preborn in the same light.  And wants to hold them tight.  Thank You, Lord, for being the Shepherd who cares for Your sheep with Your beloved hands.

Topics:  Pray for trust in the Lord as a little lamb, ram, or ewe trusts the shepherd for safety and care.
