The Lord is MY Shepherd…

The Lord shepherds a large flock—sheep gathered from every tribe, nation and tongue. Yet, each one is uniquely important and loved by Him. I cherish the fact that He is not only the Good Shepherd, but the Lord is my shepherd. He leaves ninety-nine sheep to find me, to rescue me, to bind up my wounds, and love on me. This is personal.

  • The Lord chose me before He created the world and then He formed me according to His plan and pattern, creating a masterpiece.
  • He recorded every day of my life in His book and prepared good things for me to do, equipping me with the desire and ability to succeed.
  • Then He made the ultimate sacrifice and laid down His life for me so I can be eternally His.

Lord, you are my Shepherd. Please help me to have lamb-like trust, to not wander, to not argue, and to gladly, thankfully walk beside you.

THE Lord is my Shepherd…

THEespressoenglish.net

I don’t have a Lord as my shepherd; I have the Lord as my shepherd. How unfathomable that the one and only, all-powerful God of the universe takes notice of me and desires to shepherd me! Other shepherds vie for leadership—common sense, feelings, fears, insecurity, the need for acceptance or accomplishment, resentment, the status quo—but the Good Shepherd invited me to follow Him. And, since He’s offering, I’m taking Him up on it. I choose Him, the Lord, to be my shepherd.
