8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
The profession of a shepherd was very low and humble. If you notice that God didn’t reveal His plans to those in high positions or to the religious leaders but to the meekest of hearts. If you want to know God’s plan for your life then live a life of submission before the Lord by seeking His face and He will reveal His plans that are just created for you.
