Message for May 28, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

Psalms 3:4-6 “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.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever”.

    As we continue our message today on Psalms 23 we have understood in the previous messages what life is all about walking with the Lord (Yahew) as our Shepherd. Throughout Scripture God’s people are described as sheep. The word tells us in Psalms 100:3 “Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us and we are his;we are his people, and the sheep of His pastures”.

    David must have wrote the twenty third Psalms later in life. He seems to be writing from experience of knowing who his Shepherd was. David sets the theme in verse one for the rest of the Psalms by stating that the “Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want. Shepherd meaning “one who directs or guides in a particular direction”. The best translation of the word “want” is “I shall not lack”. With God as his Shepherd (protector), David knew he would not lack anything he needs.

   We like David should settle in our heart that the Lord is our good,good Shepherd. He wants only the best for His sons and daughters. He leads we follow and He begin our good, good Shepherd will always provide for the journey!
