No matter how unique, gifted, different, anointed, or special you are, you will always need a flock, a group, or an assembly of people to reach your high calling and full potential in God.

You won’t find complete rest in Christ until you find your restful flock.

Song of Solomon 1:7-8
[7]Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?
[8]If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the FOOTSTEPS OF THE FLOCK, and FEED THY KIDS beside the SHEPHERDS’ TENTS.

Your restful flock contains 3 things:

1. FOOTSTEPS OF THE FLOCK – In your restful flock, you will fellowship with like minded people that do what you do because they believe what you believe. Your flock won’t be the crowd that was called, but it will be the few that answered the call, and was chosen.

2. FEED THY KIDS – Your restful flock will have opportunities to feed, serve and teach those that are younger than you: children, younger disciples, or new believers. You will be able to share your testimony, give, and serve, watching your fruit grow in others.

3. BESIDES THE SHEPHERD’S TENTS – Your restful flock won’t be an independent band of wounded renegades. There will be spiritual leadership, compassionate care, and biblical structure from men that are qualified by proven character and integrity, not status, clout, talent, money, or organization/denomination. In Acts, we see that Christ’s congregation is a collection of Christ following men leading their families and being an example to single believers. Your restful flock will stay submitted and connected to the shepherds tents.
