Text: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. (Psalm 23:6, New King James Version)
Our good and merciful Shepherd, never denying who He is, guides us . Deserving His wrath, we, His Sheep, experience, rather, His goodness and mercy all our days. Our Shepherd has not forgotten us. He will never stop guiding us. He came from heaven to earth, so we, His sheep, can follow Him from earth to heaven forever.
Have you submitted your life to the Lord Jesus Christ? Do you know Him as your guiding Shepherd? These blessings of the Shepherd are for those who know and follow Him.

Text: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. (Psalm 23:5, New King James Version)
In this hostile world, bountifully fed from our Shepherd’s table in safety, our Shepherd having already triumphed over our enemies, are you living out of the fullness of Christ’s bounty or still wandering in a wasteland, feeding on a table of your own choosing, rather then according to His Word? Are you living as one anointed or filled with the Holy Spirit, and overflowing with Christ? Let the Holy Spirit lead you to feed on Christ, such that Christ overflows out of you.

Text: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4, New King James Version)
He leads His sheep to green pastures through the valley of affliction. Fear no evil. He, the source of comfort is always with us, protecting with His Rod, guiding & keeping us with His Staff, The Rod and Staff of His providence and of His Word. Accept His path, hear His Word. Keep your eyes on the good Shepherd and He will bring you safely home.
 God’s works of providence are, His most holy, wise, and powerful preserving and governing all his creatures and all their actions. (question 11 of the Westminster Shorter Catechism)

Text: He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3, New King James Version)
Have you wandered and lost your way like a “cast down” sheep? “We all like sheep have gone astray.” For His sheep, the Lord our Shepherd does a restoring work saying, “I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick.” (Ezekiel 34:16 a) He picks up His cast down sheep and then leads us in right paths, proven paths of holiness, mapped out in His Word. He never leads in a bad way.
 A cast down sheep is a sheep which has laid down and cannot get up because it center of gravity is off. If not turned upright and put on its feet by the shepherd it can die in a matter of hours.

Text: He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters. (Psalm 23:2, New King James Version)
It is most important to know The Lord is my Shepherd, who cares and provides.
He provides the green pastures of His word, gently persuading us to feed on and rest in His Word. Knowing we need more than His word, He leads us beside the still waters of His Holy Spirit. Food and water. Word and Spirit. Do you seek to know His word? Do you desire and ask for the thirst quenching work of the Holy Spirit in your life
Thoughts from the morning sermon — May 10, 2020
Do you know The Shepherd of Psalm 23 Personally? If so, you can say, “I shall not want” or “I shall not lack anything I need.”
Why? Because the Good Shepherd, the Lord God Himself, knows and constantly cares for His sheep. Sheep need a lot of help. Have you embraced your sheepness, realizing you need the Shepherd? Are you content with His care for you? Pray you grow in contentment in the Lord your Shepherd and that others will see the Lord is your Shepherd written all over your face.

Are these well known words of Psalm 23, the LORD is my Shepherd, your words?
Can you say from your heart, the LORD is MY Shepherd? Do you hear His voice? Do you desire to follow Him? Are you amazed the LORD, the Creator of all things, came down and called your name? In the coming weeks, in our services, we hope you will meditate with us on the LORD, our Shepherd. Pray you will hear His voice and follow Him.
