SERIES: Praying the Psalms
TEXT: Psalms 23
MESSAGE: “The Lord is My Shepherd”
TEXT: Psalm 23
As we look through today’s text, we see that in every season, the Lord is our Shepherd and He is worthy of our life.
Question for today: How do we know and follow the Good Shepherd?
- The Lord is Our Provider
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
- The Lord is Present
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, 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 overflows.
- The Lord is Gracious
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
