king david shepherd

Psalm 23

King David was once a shepherd who had humbly and wisely recognized that he was also a sheep, in regards to being completely dependent on God. He knew that without God, he was helpless, as all of us are. God is not just our great creator, God is also our perpetual sustainer. A shepherd knows all of his sheep . Due to the immensity of God’s love for each and every one of us, we shall never lack in anything that we truly ‘need.’ There are things that we ‘want’ that we might not get. But, God knows what is best for us. God’s grace and mercy has already given us greater blessings than we can even dream to ask for or want. All will come to pass here on earth. Jesus defeated death for us…so we can live an everlasting life beyond any realm of imagination.
Psalm 23:1-6
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.
