When doubts filled my mind...

“When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”(Psalms 94:19 NLT)

“He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”” (Luke 24:38–39 NIV)

“We are the people he watches over, the sheep under his care. Oh, that you would listen to his voice today!”(Psalms 95:7 NLT)

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.” (John 10:14–17 NIV)

Jesus fulfills the longings of the Psalmist's heart. When the Psalmist had doubts filling his mind, the Lord comforted him giving renewed hope and cheer. When the disciples were mourning the death of Jesus, He came to them and showed them His hands and feet giving them faith, hope and love.
 Jesus epitomized God's shepherding Heart. He is the good shepherd.

All that I long for - every legitimate desire is fulfilled in person of Jesus. He is everything. He will infuse me with hope. He will shepherd me and I can be sure that I will hear His voice and be given every opportunity to follow Him.

Lord, help me to follow you when doubts fill my mind.
