Today on my birthday I’m reminded of Psalms 23. Psalms 23 is very relevant to me today because King David, who wrote Psalms 23 saw in his life, what I’ve also now have seen in my life. King David came from being a Shepherd of sheep of his father’s cattle, one of 8 brothers (The baby brother) nobody thought he would grow up to become a great deal. But nevertheless he rose up to become king, and while being the king of Israel he composed this psalm. Realizing just as he was a Shepherd over his father’s sheep. In that same way God our father in heaven has been the Shepherd over our lives as well.
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 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. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever”. (Psalms 23:1-6 NKJV)
