If you believe, say Amen! And don’t just say it with your words — you are no longer powerless against the wiles of the enemy! Testify with your life, your love, for God and for others! Let the refining fires burn hot, let the refreshing waters flow cold, and let your light shine bright in your children, OH LORD!
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. – Psalms 23:1-2 ESV
You have a Good Shepherd, Children of God. And He walks with you and caresources for you. Those of you who have ears to hear, You are His and He is yours! He will not abandon you, and nothing and no one is powerful enough to overcome Him, He is the LORD!
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 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. – Psalms 23:3-4 ESV
We will have valleys to walk with Him. We will encounter trials. We will feel the rich of his correction and guidance. Do not be afraid, little lamb, He will keep you from the wolves because He is no hireling or wolf in sheep’s clothing – He lays down His life for the sheep. You can trust Him completely. He proves Himself faithful and true.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalms 23:5-6 ESV
He is not leading you to the slaughter, but returning you to your place at the table. He is restoring you to that right standing with your Heavenly Father. He is leading you in the Way, the Truth, and the Life set before you that you are called to walk – following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Come, take up your cross and follow Him, and find that His commandments are not a burden but a blessing. He will teach you love, because He loves you, Child of God.
Go, tell the world of this great love that He has for you! Praise His Holy Name and see the enemies flee. They shall not overcome, because He already has! Amen!
