SHEPHERD // OCTOBER 27, 2020
The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
Psalm 23:1, TPT
David knew from personal experience what it was like to be a shepherd. He was well aware of the constant care and intimacy that a shepherd had with his sheep. Reflecting on this David declared, "The Lord is my shepherd."
Sheep are defenseless, they get lost and need constant care. The Bible refers to us as sheep and to God as our great shepherd. He guides us to places of provision, guards us from falling into pits and protects us from our enemies. He is always available, never leaving or forsaking us!
God is watching over you to guide, guard and protect you 24/7! He is not distant. Even when you do not know what to do, you know who to go to! What does it look like to you to have God as your shepherd? How have you personally experienced his provision, guidance and protection?
