The Lord is my Shepherd and I an thrilled to belong to Him, for it is thus that I shall flourish and thrive no matter what life may bring to me
One of my favorite subjects on the ancient culture Jesus lived in is the relationship between shepherds and their sheep.
First of all, wipe away the picture of sheep grazing through lush green fields of grass
The sheep were always on the move, because their shepherds were always leading them through the desert hills looking for small green shrubs that had gotten enough dew to pierce the barren ground.
Sheep were given what they needed just for that day, and trusted their shepherd to take care of tomorrow.
We can learn a few things from sheep, huh?
I shall not want
The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me],
I shall not lack.
The Lord is my shepherd; I have what I need.
The Lord is my shepherd.
I lack nothing.
You, Lord, are my shepherd.
I will never be in need.
The Lord is my shepherd.
I will always have everything I need.
It is the personal intimate relationship - individual and direct
David was not referring to material or physical prosperity when he mad the statement, “I shall not want”
Psalm 23:1 TPT The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures
The Lord provides all the nourishment I need - clean, fresh
Free of all fear
Free from friction with others
Free from torment by flies, parasites
Fully fed
Christ our Good Shepherd presence is the answer
Jesus is the only solution for all our inner and external conflicts
This life of quiet, overcoming, of happy repose, of rest in His management is something few Christians ever fully enjoy
He leads me beside the still waters.
Only the shepherd knows where the water can be obtained
Human soul needs the water of the Spirit of the eternal God
He alone knows where the still quiet, deep, clean, pure water is to be found that can satisfy His sheep and keep them fit
In Christian life, most serene, most confident, and able to cope with life’s complexities are those who rise early each day to feed on God’s Word
Only the Spirit and life of Christ Himself will satisfy the thirsting soul
The Holy Spirit would make us see that life in Christ was the only truly satisfying life
Psalm 23:3 TPT He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss.
He restores my soul
Jesus puts back our soul to the right condition- fresh, confident and strong
cast or cast down sheep
Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd picking up “cast sheep”
Easy place, the cozy corner, the comfortable position
Too much wool - old self-life
Sheep being too fat - Men/women feel they are flourishing and have “arrived”
He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake
Circular paths of righteousness - each step we take following our Shepherd will lead us higher, even though it may seem we are going in circles.
No other class of livestock requires more careful handling, more detailed direction, than do sheep.
Left to go their own way, left to the whims of their own destructive habits.
The greatest single safeguard which shepherd has in handling his flock is to keep them on the move.
A predetermined plan of action, a deliberate, planned rotation from one grazing ground to another in line with right and proper principles of sound management.
The owner’s entire name and reputation depends on how effectively and efficiently he keeps his charges moving onto wholesome, new, fresh forage.
The shepherd knows intimately all the pastures, he know where his flock will thrive.
Turning to “my own way” simply means doing what I want.
And this I do in spite of every warning.
The greed and selfishness of mankind leaves behind a legacy of ruin and remorse.
But as far as actually being led in paths of righteousness is concerned, precious few of us follow that path.
Actually this is the pivot on which a Christian either “goes on” with God or at which point he “goes bak” from following on.
For the one follow Him, will discover fresh pasturage; new, abundant life; and increased health, wholesomeness, and holiness in his walk with God.
Instead of living myself most, I am willing to love Christ best and others more than myself
Instead of being one of the crowd, I am willing to be singled out, set apart the gang
Instead of insisting on my rights, I am willing to forego them in favor of others
Instead of being “boss”, I am willing to be at the bottom of the heap
Instead of finding fault with life and always asking “Why?”
