God’s Word is amazingly profound and lifegiving. For example, if we only had this line from Scripture, “The LORD is my Shepherd”, we could spend a lifetime in contemplation and application of it. (Psalm 23)
Just think of it. The guardian and lover of our soul is none other than the great “I AM”, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the LORD God, maker of heaven and earth, the Almighty, Who was and is and is to come. He is the God who pursues us and enters into covenant with us.
A shepherd has three main responsibilities: protection, direction and provision.
