One psalm I love so much is the 23rd Psalm. Vs one says, “The Lord is my shepherd.” I find this statement to be very profound. You will, if you know just how caring, and loving human shepherds are to their sheep or cattle. They trek long hours in search of green pastures for their animals often with little to eat themselves. The animals always come first!
Imagine having God as your shepherd, always putting you first. If you’ve got the time, take a look at that Psalm again and let the words sink. The Lord is your shepherd. Today, tomorrow, Yesterday. He is your shepherd on Monday, on Tuesday, and in everyday of the week. He is your shepherd in January, in December, and every month of the year. He is when you are at work, or at home, and when you travel abroad. He is your shepherd in hard times or in good times.
Worried about what the year holds for you, relax. The One who led you throughout last year and the other years will lead you through this one. He has kept you safe until now. So hold His loving hand tightly, and He will lead you safely through all things. And when you cannot stand, He will carry you in His arms. Do not look ahead to what may happen tomorrow. Our great shepherd who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day.
Live your greatest life!
