My Shepherd…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever

David knew and we know that eternity begins now and we have its promise of life with God not separated from God.  Jesus picks up this same analogy and states that he is the Good Shepherd and we are his sheep.  Jesus said he cares for us; provides food, spiritual and physical.  He gives rest from the turmoil around us.  We can rest in him in the middle of the battle or turmoil.  He vindicates us.  Note:  We do not set the table…he does.  We rest and let him.  Can you not just love, love, love our Lord?

Jesus, the Good Shepherd John 10:14
