The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
Morning my Jesus!
What a wonderful way to start the day, to be reminded that You are my LORD. You are Yahweh, the Great I AM. You spoke life into creation. You breathed life into man. And, this morning, You great me with the knowledge that You are my God and also my shepherd.
I love how You use language I can understand. A shepherd is responsible for the sheep under his care. He protects them, leads them to water and food, but what I love, is a sheep will respond to the shepherd’s voice. The sheep knows his Master’s voice. Oh, how I want to know Your voice above all others.
On the other hand, Jesus, sheep aren’t too smart. In fact, they’re kind of dumb. Which is very true of me. I think I have all this knowledge and wisdom, but it’s nothing to You. I am easily lead astray, deceived and really can’t even take care of myself.
With You as my shepherd I can feel secure. Help me to know Your voice and follow. Please teach me Your way and provide all I need. With You at the center of my life I want to praise You in everything I do today!
I love You, my precious Jesus!
