Parts of the well known Psalm 23 says “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want…He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me…”
Jesus is the good shepherd and we as believers are His sheep. Jesus is good and has always our best in mind. We can trust Him, who demonstrated His love for us until death on the cross. On the third day, Jesus was raised from the dead and lives forevermore. His heart beats with strong love for His people.
Sheep among wolves
We are like sheep among wolves in this world. Jesus has called us to follow Him. He is the shepherd and knows what’s best, the sheep don’t. When we follow Jesus, will He sometimes lead us through the valley of the shadow of death. Because, in that valley there are precious people. To be there is not fun. You can feel the darkness and evil around. But Jesus want to lead you and me there, so people can get the opportunity to be saved. There are many today, in the midst of the welfare, who are in that valley. So, don’t hesitate but know that “for You (Jesus) are with me” Ps. 23:4
Share what you have received, to others. Every human soul is so precious before God and for every single person that gets saved, there is great joy in heaven. Actually will there also be great joy in your own heart.
God bless you
