IS GOD YOUR SHEPHERD?

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” (Psalms 23:1-6

Beloved, the kind of shepherd you have determines the fulfillment of your needs and wants. Dear beloved, simply take some time to meditate very well on the opening scripture and you will not complain in life because everything happening to you will be understood.

Making the LORD your shepherd is an intimate relationship with your heavenly Father; it is a personal relationship where you totally submit to Him irrespective of the circumstances you find yourself in (Matthew 6:9). The Psalmist understood this relationship and he lacked nothing.

Beloved, when you take your relationship with God very seriously without compromising, God will not take you for granted. It all starts with Jesus Christ of Nazareth because He is the Good Shepherd revealed to us in the New Testament (John 10:11).

  1. Let the needs of Jesus Christ be important to you,
  2. invest in the gospel,
  3. show kindness to people, and God will provide for you and be with you and see you through the difficult times (Matthew 28:19–20).

PRAYER POINT:

My precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I bless Your name for being my good shepherd. If You gave Your life for me, then You can do much more for me than I could ever ask. Please help me know You very intimately and build a stronger relationship with You forever. Amen!
