Jesus delivers happiness,
but only to clueless sheep. Jesus has nothing to offer other shepherds/independents, those who are wise in their own eyes, leaning on their own understanding. In fact, Jesus frequently thwarts the attempts of His sheep who are shepherd-wannabes, trying to make their lives work, trying to find happiness, on their own. Jesus created us to be happy as humble, clueless, lowly sheep, and to be miserable as shepherd-wannabes.
–ShepherdDave, needing prayer for fresh conviction of the sin of independence, so he returns to being DumbSheepDave, asking His Shepherd about everything, thanking Him for everything, especially the harrrd, so he’ll be happy as a clam, no matter the circumstances, so the other sheep will want His Shepherd too (please pray now)
