THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

One, if not the most familiar scripture we know is the 23rd Psalm…

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths

for his name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil,

for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

It talks about following Jesus…it starts with a promise from God’s heart…

As we read this scripture that a lot of us know by heart…

The 23rd Psalm begins with these familiar words, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want."

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep." (John 10:11). Truly, "the Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want."

What does it mean, The Lord is my Shepherd…it means I as His sheep follow Him, I trust Him to lead me…

The bible gives us truth…everything that God has told predicted thousands of years in advance has happened …we don’t need to doubt His ability to predict the future…He knows your particular future just as well as He knows how the ending of the earth system as we know it will happen…

Our lives actually are journeys…we are going somewhere…we are on our way whether we realize it or not…

Think about it…the earth spins around at about a thousand ??? miles an hour…while it goes around a gigantic fire ball called the sun and we don’t even feel we are moving…we can’t see or feel it…we are always heading to summer or heading to fall…going somewhere. We are headed into tomorrow and next week …we have been on a journey since we were conceived and…We will all end up at one of two places…

There are some scary places that people have to walk through as they journey and on your journey you will see some amazing things…you may experience falling in love, the birth of a child, you may travel around and see all sorts of world wonders…you will no doubt travel some dark valleys…you will see some pain along the way. No matter what …you are going somewhere on your journey. Your journey has some mystery involved…you see you may think you’re going one way when actually you can end up somewhere different than you intended…you will either follow someone who you can trust or you’ll follow your own course…the course you think you are charting…

God sent Someone to lead us… A shepherd - He knows the territory – He knows what tomorrow holds for you, He knows what you need to face it…what’s waiting next year or ten years in the future…or even next day… your destiny changes the moment you decide to trust Him…
