The Shepherd

6 02 2014

winter clear roadThe Lord is my shepherd;

I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;

He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.

 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me. Psalm 23:1-4

We serve a capable Shepherd who knows His sheep.   He knows who we are, where we are and where we need to go.  He knows all about our beginnings and every challenge we have faced along the way.  He even knows the desires of our heart.  We don’t have to worry that He does not see us.  He is omnipresent in our world and even in the personal struggle in our hearts.  He sees it all.  Nothing comes as a surprise but some of our choices may grieve His heart.  He has asked us to trust Him.  Not a little bit, not when it is convenient but with our whole heart.  He has asked us to trust Him and to trust His Word.  He has asked us to be assured and to walk in faith that what His Word is a message of love.  A love that is powerful to cover whatever we are facing.  We can trust Him.  We can follow Him in faith and in love into our purpose.
