“THE Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures;
He leads me beside the still and restful waters. [Rev. 7:17.]
He refreshes and restores my life (my self);
He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him–not for my earning it, but] for His name's sake.
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life,
and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.”
Psalm 23:1-6 AMP
Have you ever noticed how loving and good the God is that we serve? King David painted a beautiful picture of this when he describes God as our Shepherd here in the 23 Psalm. Take some time today to really think on these scriptures. As our Shepherd, God wants us to never be in lack. No, our God wants us safe, healthy and going down the right path. These truths are yours for the taking if you'll allow him to be.
