Good morning, Family:
This morning, I was lead to write this devotional. As a shepherd, David began his life leading, guiding, herding and protecting sheep. It was all that he knew, up until the time he was anointed to be king.
When David wrote this Psalm, he wrote it in a way that illustrated that the roles had been changed. David was now in the one that needed to be led, guided and protected by the Great Shepherd, Jehovah.
Listen to David as he pours out his heart to God:
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, 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.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of theLord
May you walk with God today and know that he will be ordering your steps, if you would allow him. Seek the voice, knowledge and wisdom of God so that your days may be blessed.
I love you all with an amazing and everlasting love.
