The Lord Is Like A Shepherd

Shepherd and sheep

 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1 (KJV) David was a shepherd taking care of his father’s flocks. He spent a great deal of time with the sheep, watching over them and leading them to pasture places. He defended them from bears and lions and probably other predators. He really knew all that the shepherd did for the sheep. In His meditations, the Lord gave him the picture of God as our shepherd. He saw that as the shepherd, He too leads His people to green pastures and finds them water. His rod and staff comfort and protect as they go through the valleys of the shadows of death. He even places us at His table to feast even as our enemies envy us. Jesus is Jehovah the great Shepherd who watches over His people as a shepherd watches over his sheep.
