OUR SHEPHERD

OUR SHEPHERD

Psalms 23:1 (NKJV) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

What a simple yet profound statement.  The Lord Jesus is our loving shepherd, and our caring Savior.  A good shepherd goes all out for his sheep.  He protects them, watches over them, and cares for them.

When a sheep is sick, the shepherd is there to anoint them, to bring comfort to them, and to put oil on them to make them feel better.  Our Jesus anoints our head with oil and takes care of us.  Jesus is 100% God and 100% human, so He knows what we feel and what we are going through.  He is not there to judge us, but to love us and help us.

A good shepherd is there to make sure that the sheep have good clean water to drink, and our Jesus makes sure that our cup overflows.  Our great God did not just make enough for us; He makes it run over!  Think of this: The universe overflows with stars and planets and comets.  Our seas overflow with fish and all the wonders of the oceans.  Our wildlife is in abundance.  He made this world so full for you and for me!

So today, do not look at the lack.  Look to the Shepherd!  He promised that we would not have a want, because our Shepherd meets all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  He is a God of MORE THAN ENOUGH!  So rest assured that He will be there!  All He asks of you is to believe and trust Him.

Confession:  The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.  The reason I do not want is because my Shepherd provides all of my needs.  He loves me and watches out for me.  What a great Shepherd I have!  His Name is Jesus!
