Twenty Third Psalm

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

When the Lord is your Shepherd, you are in His Presence. When the Lord is your Shepherd, you are following Him. When the Lord is your Shepherd, you are seeking the Kingdom of God first and His righteousness. When the Lord is your Shepherd, you can truly say that you love Him in the context that He placed that love; “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him” (John 14:23). When the Lord is your Shepherd, all the promises of this prayer can by yours.
 
So what are these promises? Like much in the bible the words of this psalm are subject to many levels of understanding and interpretation. Meditate on them; see where they bring you. Read the posts titled The Good Shepherd (In The Words of Jesus; parts 20-23) where this Great Prayer is addressed in detail.
