The Good Shepherd Cares for His Sheep

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

For any good thing I need He shall never withhold from me.

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John10:11

Christ gave His life for me.  No greater love has no man than this.

For "you were like sheep going astray," but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.  1 Peter 2:25

For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; 'he will lead them to springs of living water.' 'And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'" Rev. 7:17 

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:  he leadeth me beside the still waters.

I will tend them in a good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land. There they will lie down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. Ezekiel 34:14

3 He restoreth my soul:  he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

My soul is restored daily and magnified that I may comprehend the depth and height of His love.  He is righteous and holy; I trust totally in His integrity and His name. 

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11


4 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.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2

Why should I fear?  His perfect love sustains me. When adversity threatens to overwhelm me, my Shepherd is there with me. When I walk through the fire, not even a scent of smoke will be on me, but I shall come forth as pure gold. 


5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

He so generously supplies my needs that my spirit overflows.  I cannot contain His never-ending mercies. 


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

How can I fear what man can do to me for the Lord is my Shepherd.  I am a sheep in His pasture.   His grace sustains me and He watches over me every day of my life.
