Psalm 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

This is a popular verse that everyone seems to know. A lot of us like to highlight the second half of this verse. We like to know that God is our Provider and He’ll never cause us to lack. Praise God He’s our provider, but in order to maximize on His provisions, we have to allow Him to be our Shepherd.

The job of the shepherd is to lead his sheep. David made the decision to be led by God and we must make the decision to be led by God. We must ask ourselves, when times are comfortable or uncomfortable, are we willing to allow God to lead us or will we wander off the pathway He set for us? Will we forgive our enemies, walk in the ways of righteousness, and do everything without complaining? These are all things the Shepherd leads us to do.

God knows and only wants what’s best for us. Let’s be good sheep and follow our Shepherd.
