In Psalm 23, we read of a good shepherd who guides, protects, and provides for his sheep.
All through the Psalm, the shepherd does all that the sheep need. He takes them to green pastures with water nearby so they can eat, drink, and rest comfortably while he watches closely over them. His rod and staff guide them along the right path, even if the path takes them through dark valleys. With their shepherd close, the sheep lack nothing.
The sheep in the Psalm represent us, and the Good Shepherd is God—guiding, protecting, and providing for us through Jesus Christ. In Him, we can find safety, security, and peace. We truly lack nothing in the arms of the Good Shepherd, in the arms of the Father. How differently would we see everything in our lives if we saw them as blessings from a Good Shepherd?
Join us for YQ23 as we discover all the Father has done to guide, protect, and provide for His people through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
The Father is the Good Shepherd, and we are His sheep.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing …. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23:1 & 6
