The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 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. 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. —Psalm 23

            Is the Lord your Shepherd?  Are you content in Him?  Are you resting in Him?  Are you following Him?  Are you ministered to by Him?  Are you guided rightly by Him for His glory?  Are you fearless in Him?  Are you comforted in Him?  Are you provided for by Him?  Are you soothed by Him?  Are you more than fulfilled in Him?  Are you experiencing His goodness?  Are you experiencing His mercy?  Are you fully convinced You will be with Him forever?

            Is the Lord your Shepherd?  If He is, then rejoice!  He only has your best interest in mind.  He desires you to be content in Him.  He desires you to rest in Him.  He desires you to follow Him.  He seeks to minister to you.  He guides you for His glory.  He does not want you to fear.  He desires to comfort you.  He desires to provide for you.  He desires to soothe you.  He desires you to be fulfilled in Him.  He desires you to experience His goodness.  He desires you to know His mercy.  He desires you to be fully convinced that you will be with Him forever.  Are you experiencing these in Jesus?  He desires you to.

Thank You, Dear Father, for Jesus being my good Shepherd and for only having my best interest in mind for His glory.  May I faithfully follow Him and trust Him by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.  Yes, may this be so!
