Trusting the Good Shepherd

One of the most loved and well known of the Psalms is the 23rd Psalm.

King David reflects on his time as a shepherd and the helplessness of the sheep. He draws the connection that we—like sheep—are incapable of properly caring for ourselves. But if we trust the Good Shepherd, we will be cared for in the most loving and generous way. God will totally satisfy us with his goodness.

As we follow the good Shepherd, we, like the sheep, may not know where we are going, but we don’t have to know.

We only need to trust that God knows where we need to go and to follow him willingly.

Do you truly trust Him?

Are you willing to follow Him anywhere? Is He your Good Shepherd? Have you made the deliberate and conscious decision to let God take His rightful place in your life?

Scripture promises that you will be satisfied and cared for in a way far beyond what you can even imagine. This Psalm concludes with:

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6)

Isn’t this a wonderful promise? Goodness, mercy and an eternal home in paradise. Our Shepherd is so Good!
