What a joy it is to know that we as sheep have God to lead us to lie down in green pastures. He gives us the rest we so truly need, and by it, He restores our souls. He is our one true shepherd.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11)
Although trials may surround us and we may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, God’s staff comforts us. His spirit provides us with the strength we need to move forward and overcome. For our hope will always remain in the Lord.
If our enemies take up a quarrel with us, then we shall not fear them. Their words will be like a vapor and shall not harm us. God will anoint us in their presence. He will make known His pleasure in our lives, and He will bless us until our cup overflows.
Throughout all the days of our lives shall goodness and mercy follow us. God’s love for us will never fail. His peace will always be upon His sheep, and we shall one day rest in the house of the Lord forever.
What a wonderful gift it is to know the Lord is our shepherd.
