God the Father promises, “I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak.”
I love the truth of God searching for strays. It’s just like He’s outside in the dark with a flashlight looking around for anyone who is downright lost. Then there are those who are weak and injured. I can imagine Him — the great Physician — binding their wounds and bringing them home to rest in His care.
God says, “I will tend them in a good pasture. There they will lie down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I Myself will tend My sheep.” (Ezekiel 34:14-15)
God does not farm out His care.
