Is The Lord Truly Your Shepherd?

Psalms 23:1 GNB

The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need.

Who is a Shepherd?

A person who protects, guides or watches over a person or group of people. –

◆ The Shepherd is in full control.

◆ The Shepherd is the only source of the Sheep’s livelihood.

◆ The Shepherd protects the Sheep.

◆ The Shepherd leads the way for the Sheep to follow.

◆The Shepherd is the guardian of the Sheep.

◆ The Shepherd does not forsake the Sheep.

I’m sure you’ve figured out that we are the Sheep.

A few characteristics of Sheep I found on the WORLD WIDE WEB.

■ Sheep have a following instinct.

■ Sheep are docile.

■ Sheep need a Shepherd.

Self Check: Based on all these qualities of the Shepherd and the Sheep. Is the Lord truly my Shepherd? Have I handed over my life to Him completely? Do I follow His lead? Do I depend on Him.

Prayer: The Lord is indeed my Shepherd. I surrender to Him. I submit myself to His authority.
