Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
This is probably one of the most famous Psalms. David knew a lot about being a shepherd. He spent his early years watching his father’s sheep. He protected them and kept a keen eye out for any enemies. He took care of all their needs. David recognized that God was his shepherd and that he was apart of God’s flock.
He knew that God watched over him and protected him from his enemies. God also provided for all of his needs. Do you see yourself as a member of God’s flock? Are you one of His sheep? Jesus said that His sheep know His voice and respond to Him. The only way to have God as your shepherd is come to Jesus by faith. Admit that you are a sinner and that Jesus is your only hope for salvation. Ask Jesus to be your shepherd, to be your savior. He’s calling you to be His. He is pursuing you, looking for you.
