Thought From The Word 8/23/19

Psalm 23:3-4
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

We see here in this verse that our shepherd is the Lord. He guides or leads us down the path of righteousness. We as believers are the sheep of His pasture therefore; He guides us to what is best for us down the path of righteousness. Then He leads us through the valley of the shadow of death. A believer walks through this valley as the Lord leads because they have eternal life. Believers leave this life to be absent from the body and present with the Lord. My friend take heart in the times we are living – have no fear for the Lord is near. He is right by our side to comfort us. The closer we can get to the Shepherd the safer we are and the more peace we will enjoy. How often have you ever thought about dying? Thought about maybe you could be killed in car accident, or active shooter in a crowd or some other possibilities. Are you ready to depart from this life? If you would receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior you would be ready – get ready today.

Because life is uncertain, we should follow our Shepherd who offers us eternal comfort
