Hello Beloved.

Trust you are good. 


*Word Alert*

*The Lord is my shepherd*


*Psalms 23:1*

_The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want_


*Insight*


Among all the prophets of the old testament, David was such a unique prophet. Theologians referred to him as a messianic prophet. Apart from the fact that he was a patriarch root to our messiah, Jesus Christ, he had great revelations, insights and prophecies about our messiah, Jesus Christ. Example of such is Psalm 23. 


Psalm 23 reveals the Lord of Host as our shepherds. This revelation reveals the tender heart of the creator of the whole universe towards us as His children. The insight reveal God is on our side and He is not against. It reveals God is for us and nothing can be against it rise against us. 


Psalms 23 reveals the shepherding and pastoral ministry of Jesus Christ towards us as His sheep. It gives us a clear ideology of the kind and quality of relationship between Jesus Christ and His body and the members of His body. It likens it to be the relationship between a shepherd and his sheep. 

This psalm of David was inspired based on how God has been so good to him and relate with him. He documented this so that we can have an impressive imagery of who Jesus Christ is to us and who we are him. Jesus Christ is our shepherd and we are His sheep. 


Jesus Christ also declared in His word in _Joh 10:11 - I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep._


The Lord is my shepherd implies the Lord is my pastor. One of the literally meaning of the word "shepherd" is pastor. Not just a pastor, a good pastor. Jesus Christ is my good pastor. One of the feature of a good pastor is that he gave his life for his sheep. He doesn't strangle the sheep. He doesn't destroy the sheep. He doesn't take advantage of His sheep. He doesn't run away from the sheep in the time of trouble or when the enemy comes against. He fight for the sheep. He cares for the sheep. He protects the sheep. He feeds the sheep. He provides everything for the sheep. 


Beloved, if you are born again, you are part of the Lord's flock. The Lord is your good Shepherd, you are His good sheep. 


The Lord is your good shepherd, you shall not lack any good thing. The Lord is your good Shepherd, your salvation is secured. The Lord is your good Shepherd, eternal life is yours. 


The Lord is your good Shepherd, you shall not die but live declare his good works in the land if the living. The Lord is your good Shepherd, no evil shall befall you, no plague shall come near your dwelling, no shame, reproach nor calamity shall come near thee. 

He gave His life for you so that you can live with Him forever. He gave His life for so that all your sins and iniquities will be forgiven and righteousness will be yours forever. 


He gave His life for you so that you will deliver from death and hell. He gave His life for you so that you will free from sickness and diseases and live in divine health and power. 


He gave His life for you so that you will be deliver from poverty and you will bless according to His riches in glory. He gave His life for you so that you can reign with Him forever. 


Beloved, no matter the situation never you forget this: the Lord is my good Shepherd, I shall not want nor lack, I shall not die, I shall not be destroyed and I shall not condemned. 


You are the blessed of the Lord. 

Keep on triumphing in life. 


*Prayer*.

_Dear Father, I thank you because you are my good shepherd and I am your good sheep. I shall not want nor lack. I shall not die but live to declare your goodness in the land of living. Glory to your name, Amen!_


*Jesus Christ is Lord.*
