The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. (Psalm 23:1, NKJV)
This is a very familiar verse of Scripture to most people. A lot of times, it's the only one they know other than John 3:16. And for Christians, that's really sad. We quote "The Lord is my shepherd" like we're going to the store. But I have a deeper question. Is the shepherd our Lord? I know, ouch! I think I've hit a nerve. (Please don't start throwing things at me!) :) Scripture tells us that we're like sheep without a sheperd. If we want to truly surrender our lives to what God wants, He has to be our Lord. We can't just give Him lip service. Ladies, we have to mean it...and truly mean it. So let me ask once more, is the shepherd our Lord?
Father, thank You for being our shepherd. Help us all to say with confidence, "yes the shepherd is our Lord!" Amen.
