The LORD makes Himself famous by perfectly shepherding us.

Monday, August 29, 2016
Psalm 23:1-3  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.  He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Just think, as we move throughout our day today as believer’s who seek to be led by the LORD, we have the promise that our LORD’s shepherding care of us is done to make Him famous, for His name’s sake.  He takes care of us in a way that He thinks is the greatest way to make his reputation glorious and famous around the world.  Our daily provision from God comes out of His own commitment to make His reputation famous and glorious.  He will make sure that we are not in want so that He is famous.  Him providing for us and leading us is what makes Him glorious and famous.  He will not let Himself down or us.  He wants us to trust Him in that loving shepherding leadership.  He wants us to be content with how He provides for us for the purpose of making His name renown in all nations.  Let Him lead, it is for His name’s sake not ours.

Dear Lord, thank You for letting us be so loved that You involve us in Your plan and purpose.  You provide for us perfectly so that Your name is not defamed.  Let us trust and be content with that shepherding care.  Let us daily come before You seeking You as our shepherd to lead and guide us.  We humbly seek You and yield to You as our loving Shepherd.  Thank You for Your Son Jesus who You have sent us to be the incarnation of Your Shepherding love as He laid His life down for His sheep.  We love You as we yield to your leadership.  We pray this for Your name’s sake, Amen.
