The Shepherd Leads Me
Daily Devotional for September 21st
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:2
To every Christian who has any history living for the Lord, we have come to know the love of our Shepherd. His every act toward us is driven by His love and concern for us. There is such a wonderful comfort in abiding wherever the shepherd leads because no ill or danger will come where He leads.
He also leads us beside the still waters. This means that the shepherd follows the edges of creeks, lakes, rivers, and ponds so that there is an ever present and constant supply of waters for his sheep. Jesus has promised to supply us with living water. He gives the refreshing that we need in our lives. He told the woman at the well that He would give her water that she would never thirst again. Along the edges of the waters are flourishing fields. The shepherd knows the best of green pastures and leads us to those places so that we may graze in His provision.
Why is the Lord leading me in this direction? There is a temptation for us to examine our path and attempt to tell the Lord where a better path would be to travel. The greatest reason why people are led astray is because they do not agree with the leading of the shepherd and go their own way. This is also the reason why most of us are not spiritually fed or watered continually.
Our survival depends on our faithfully following Jesus. He knows where we need to go. He knows your needs. Examine your life this morning. Are there areas where you’ve chosen to go your own way? Is your spiritual strength at a low point? Can you look at your walk with God and tell you have drifted? Your lack of nourishment is a sign you may have drifted from the Shepherd. If you will trust His leadership, He will lead you beside the waters and pastures you need. Proverbs 3:5-6.

Are you living your life apart from God?
As we have said many times, there is such a reality of knowing Jesus! Our concern is that there are many people who may attend church, but do not know the reality of relationship with Jesus! Jesus has promised living water unto those who are thirsty! This living water satisfies! An experience with Christ will not leave you feeling like you’re still unsatisfied. He will satisfy every longing within you.
