The good shepherd


The Lord is my Fierce Protector and my Pastor.
I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me
In his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace,
The quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure,
And leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness,
So that I can bring honor to his Name.
Lord, even when your path takes me through
The valley of deepest darkness
Fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.
Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely for you are near.
You become my delicious feast even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit;
You give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows.
So why would I fear the future?
For I’m being per sued only by your goodness and unfailing love.
Then afterwards – when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you! Psalm 23 The Passion Translation

Put yourself into this Psalm, David wrote this Psalm but it is true for us too. We will never be lonely because God is near to us always and we are being pursued by His love. He will restore and revive us. He will lead us and when we are walking through hard things He remains close. His love and comfort are always there so we need not to fear. We are strengthened with the Holy Spirit and we have power and authority in the name of Jesus.

Let this be an encouragement to you. When things seem hard read this Psalm aloud and let it fill you and restore the fight in back in you. You were born for such a time as this and you can do hard things.
