The Father's love
Vs 1 The Lord is my shepherd.
This is a statement of surrender and submission. The Lord in whom I am surrendered and submitted to, is my shepherd and I shall not want.
The sheep follows the shepherd, the shepherd leads. Nothing can snatch you from the hands of our Lord, the Good Shepherd.
Vs 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters
As a believer, you need to depend daily on the word of God, refer to the word of God for your daily portion.
As the good Shepherd, He leads you beside still waters; this is a state of rest in God. Take a break and allow Him to lead you. Trust Him, He cannot lead you astray.
Vs 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Do you trust Him enough to let Him take the lead in your journey of life, for His namesake not because you have made a sacrifice or deserving, but because of who He is!
The Shepherd leads you through the valley of the shadow of death, fear no evil. No attack can come near the sheep on account of Shepherd’s presence taking the lead. The shepherd’s rod and staff comfort the sheep.
The good shepherd prepares the table before the sheep in the presence of the enemy. The preparation of the table sometimes will take time, you need to be patient. The table here represents the tabletop of the mountain.
The shepherd anoints the head of the sheep with oil to protect them from insects/predators. The anointing is also for the protection of those around you including your nation. Your anointing runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and you would dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Your responsibility is to follow the good shepherd, and all goodness and mercy shall follow you all your life.
The Father’s love demonstrated His love to us first in that He died for us even whilst we were yet sinners.
Follow the Shepherd’s love, God’s love is worth your absolute trust.
