Heavenly Shepherd

TODAY’S VERSE
The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
Psalms 23:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David wrote this famous Psalm about God being our Heavenly Shepherd from experience. As a young man, he spent his time shepherding a flock of sheep for his father. He knew the value of a shepherd to the flock. He also knew the importance of knowing God. David knew that the shepherd provides all that the sheep need. He even knew that God, like a shepherd, lets us rest in green meadows, leads us beside peaceful streams, renews our strength, and guides us along the right path. Even in the darkest times, God is right there close by our side, comforting us. With God as our shepherd, David concludes that goodness and unfailing love will pursue us as long as we shall live. I love the concept of the shepherd; it is being a sheep that I struggle with. I struggle to surrender my will to God. But as my shepherd, God’s love cuts through my pride. His love compels me to live for Him. My Heavenly Shepherd’s love wins and woos my heart, helping me to surrender myself to His control. I can trust Him. I can lean on Him. I can be my needy self and know that God will care for me. Today, let God shepherd you. Commit yourself to Him and His loving care.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for all Your care. Thank You for all You provide and do for me. You are my Heavenly Shepherd and I will gladly live for You.
AMEN
