The Eternal is my shepherd, He cares for me always. He provides me rest in rich, green fields beside streams of refreshing water. He soothes my fears; He makes me whole again, steering me off worn, hard paths to roads where truth and righteousness echo His name”. Psalm 23:1-3 (VOICE)
This Psalm so beautiful, in all of its promise filled ways, giving us every hope for life, and the calm assurance that we are never alone. As The Passion Translation tells us…the Lord is my Best Friend and my Shepherd. I always have more than enough!
The very Eternal One Himself goes ahead of you, as a Good Shepherd always does, leading the way day by day. He guides you into the peace He has promised, and into the planned provision set apart for you specifically from the beginning of time.
If by chance you do stray off the path of purpose He has for you, His love will chase after you, guiding you all the way back home, until you are once again safe and secure under the shadow of His love and protection.
Should you find yourself in the midst of difficult people or daunting places—even then you need not fear. He is so comfortable and so confident in His own strength and ability that He will set a love feast, for the two of you to be together, right in the midst of it all!
He gives you everything you need, until your heart overflows, never leaving you for a second, never looking away for a moment, never stopping the great outpouring of His unconditional, never-ending love for you, at any time along the way.
Dear heart, what a Friend you have in Jesus. A Shepherd Who knows exactly where you are meant to be and who you were made to be. No striving needed to stay true to your call, just stay close to the One Who is leading, believe that His heart is turned towards you, and trust Him most of all!
Dear Jesus, truly You are my Shepherd, and I declare today, that I shall not want. Where you lead me Lord, I long to go. Where You guide me, I will follow. Follow in Your footsteps of love.
I praise You for the path that You have planned and for the righteousness I walk in, when I walk with You.
I receive it all today, dearest Lord, and I celebrate You! There is no one like You Lord, in all the earth. No one Who loves and cares for me, as You do.
Oh Lord my God, You are faithful, beautiful, and true!
