He's The Shepherd!
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
What do you call a sheep covered in chocolate? A candy baa
sheep are dumb and get scared easily and lost easily
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
We are considered sheep and God is our shepherd. Can you say “my shepherd?”
When God is our shepherd we have everything we need.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Any disturbance or intruder will scare sheep. They are very fearful animals and will not lie down unless they feel safe and sheep don’t like fast flowing streams.
We can lie down because of the shepherd’s protection.
God will provide what we need and it will have a soothing and calming effect on us as sheep.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
He leads on the right path. Following the shepherd and staying on the correct path, we enjoy God’s protection.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Life isn’t always roses and candy.
We will walk through dark and gloomy times in our life. We can though, walk through these times without fear knowing that God is with us. He will carry and protect us during these times.
A rod is used for protection and for discipline.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
When a host has guest the host is also responsible to protect his guest not just feed them.
“runneth over” - God’s great generosity.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
With the Lord as our shepherd and our host we have “goodness and mercy” for all of our life.
