Godís Love for You

 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.

He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul.

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 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.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 23

 

†††† David, a shepherd boy and a king, knew God better than any other Old Testament friend.† He understood that God cares for you in the same way a shepherd cares for his sheep.

†††† Picture God as nudging you with His rod and gently pulling you alongside Himself with the hook of His staff.† Now rest in this love.
