How You are Known (13) – My Shepherd

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1)

To say “The Lord is my Shepherd” must carry with it in our understanding not merely grateful praise for the infinite grace and tenderness of the Great Shepherd who leads us by still waters and in green pastures, but confessions of our own helplessness and need of a shepherd’s care. And a remembrance of our lost, undone condition, until

All through the mountains, thunder-riven,

And up from the rocky steep,

There arose a glad cry to the gates of heaven,

“Rejoice! I have found My sheep!”
