I Love How He Shepherds Me

Psalm 23 is no doubt the most well-known and well-loved psalm. It’s the first one kids memorize in Sunday school and a lot of adults can recite it still. Unless a person really thinks about what it means to be shepherded, it can simply be rote and meaningless. Jesus called himself our shepherd but how often do we think of him in that way?

Our shepherd Jesus provides everything we need. When he leads us by the still waters, we can relax and rest in his presence. Laying down in a green pasture means we don’t have to be looking over our shoulders for danger or trouble. We can even stay calm when the enemy is circling around us. We know he will always guide us and his loving presence is with us in this life and the next.

I love that he describes himself as our good shepherd (John 10:11-18). The good shepherd knows us intimately and loves us so much he laid down his life for us. And after the crucifixion and resurrection, he did not leave us alone. He is still guiding, protecting and loving us. How can we do anything but love the shepherd of our souls with our whole hearts? He is our true champion and defender – always.
