The LORD loves being a Shepherd.

Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Our God (Yahweh) in heaven loves to be called a Shepherd.  A Shepherd who has sheep that He loves and cares for at every moment of the day.  Our God who is perfect, holy and powerful loves to stoop down into our world where we sheep roam around and He shows loving care for us for our sake.  He is my Shepherd.  This confession comes with us admitting that we are sheep.  We are like weak sheep that are in need of protection and provision from our Shepherd God.  In order for us to enjoy God as our Shepherd, we must confess our weaknesses and surrender ourself to being led by God as our Shepherd in His sheepfold and into His pastures.  Do you want God as your Shepherd?  Do you want to rest in His providential Shepherding as He leads you into green pastures and into the valley of the shadow of death?  As the Good Shepherd He will do both for our greater good (Romans 8:28).  Yahweh God, has sent Jesus to be our Good Shepherd who says, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11).  Trust Jesus as your loving Shepherd.  Let us rejoice in being led by a good and great Shepherd who lays down His life for us sheep.  Let us humbly submit to His Shepherding as sheep who are weak and in need.

Father, You are our Shepherd.  Lead us into the pastures that You see are best for us to make us more like You as our Shepherd.  Thank You for being our God who loves to stoop down into this messy world to protect and provide for us Sheep even to the point of giving up the life of Your Son Jesus for us.  You are the loving good Shepherd.  We submit to your leadership.  In Jesus’ loving name, Amen.
