The True Shepherd
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
4 Even 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.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
The Lord is the true shepherd who leads your life by providing for your deepest needs and protecting you from your greatest fears.
- Where is the first place you turn for provision and protection in your life?
- What is the hardest part about trusting in the Lord’s provision and protection?
- Read John 10:1-21. How does Jesus provide for and protect you, and how is that different from where you typically turn?
