Let Jesus Be Your Guide – I Will Go Where the Good Shepherd Leads

psalm23-lg

The other day, I read a FaceBook post from a very beautiful young lady – whom I love dearly.  Her post stated, “Praying for guidance in so many areas of my life!” and immediately, my mind went to Psalms 23:1-6.

Psalms 23 is a very familiar passage with tremendous healing properties.  Psalms 23 will clear your mind; keep you focused, relax you; comfort you; lift you up; refresh you…Psalms 23 is literally a spiritual massage…Lol!!! – and of course the passage will most certainly guide you in the right direction.

When I read that young lady’s post, I started to reflect on the word of God and here is how I was inspired and compelled to expound on Psalm 23:

  1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    {Jesus, the Good Shepherd guides us in every way and provides all our needs; there is never anything that is lacking…therefore, I will go where the Good Shepherd leads…}
  2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    {the Good Shepherd makes a comfortable resting place for us and he 
    satisfies our thirsty soul…therefore, I will go where the Good Shepherd leads…}
  3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    {when I am tired and distraught, the Good Shepherd refreshes me and he keeps me focused and on the right track…therefore, I will go where the Good Shepherd leads…}
  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.
    {yes, there will be times when I am saddened or despondent, but I do not lose hope and I won’t be afraid, because the Good Shepherd is my present help in my time of trouble; the Good Shepherd is my Protector and my Comforter…therefore, I will go where the Good Shepherd leads…}
  5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    {I am not intimidated by my enemies because the Good Shepherd goes before me and makes even my enemies to be at peace with me…therefore, I will go where the Good Shepherd leads…}
  6. 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.
    {Hallelujah, yes and amen!!!  The Good Shepherd has provided me with His Goodness and His Mercy for the rest of my life and I will live with the Good Shepherd for eternity}…therefore,

    I will go where the Good Shepherd Leads, I will eat what the Good Shepherd feeds and the Good Shepherd will lead me into Green Pastures

To the beautiful young lady from FaceBook and everyone else who may be reading my blog, please always remember, God cares about you (1 Peter 5:7), He is a very present help in trouble (Psalms 46:1), and He will perfect everything that concerns you (Psalms 138:8).  I pray there was a word of comfort and encouragement to someone who may be hurting.

This is my very first post to my blog “Speaking the Truth in Love” and I am looking forward to many, many, many, more.
