“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”
Psalm 23:1-3 ESV
In this politically charged climate, we are told not to be sheep, but God’s Word tells us we are the sheep of His pasture. So what does this mean to be God’s sheep?
A shepherd cares for his sheep. He tends to his flock, seeing they have food, water, and rest they need. He defends his flock against predators, and he wrangles the sheep who wanders astray.
But our Shepherd goes above and beyond. He takes us to places, through seasons where we find respite from the craziness of the world. He restores us during summers of calm and closeness with Him through quiet and His Word. He brings people into our lives that stir our growth to prepare us for winters that loom ahead.
How has God provided and cared for you? 🚦
