“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters. 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.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”

In this devotion, we come to the 23rd psalm, which is a psalm of David.This scripture is well known throughout the world of Christendom. King David penned these words in his life after all the trials he had been through, all the tribulation he had suffered. It is after all this he has endured when he pens these words realign that the Lord is the true shepherd.The Lord is the one that guides His people. We can take David’s words to heart.We can know that just as he declares the Lord is the shepherd and makes us lie in green pasture.These words are a symbolic representation of the rest and life that the Lord gives to His people.
