WHAT I MEAN WHEN I SAID THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD.

 

when I said the lord is my shepherd I mean, He looked at me as a sheep that needs to be cared for, watched and guided, direct and protected. he sees me as one that knows nothing about what he is doing, for He said; father, forgive them for they know not what they are doing. He gave me freedom to dwell in His kingdom even when I kwon I am not qualified but He said come. it is because of thy sake I died on the cross.

so when you as a man flesh and blood judged me, by saying different things about me, I am a thief, I am a liar, I am this I am that, you know me but you don’t know me, even when you know me, you don’t have the right to crucify me except He whom has already be crucified because of me ‘ JESUS’ therefore, I shall not want.

He makes me to lie down in the green pasture, that is, the part which is sure. that is devoid of hard work. that all I need is just a gaze at the cross admiring my lord Jesus. believing and confessing Him as my lord and personal saviour. that by His righteousness I am made righteous through faith the assurance of salvation. and above all, leads me beside the still water, washed me clean from my sins and cover me with His grace as shelter. therefore, my soul is restored.

so, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, the path of unrighteousness, where things I am warned  not to do but I found myself doing them, where the law hold me as hostage by creating an opportunity  a room for sin to put me in bondage, by trying to change my identity the person I am in Christ Jesus, who for this particular reason died for me on the cross of Calvary, see; I fear not.   because thou art with me. His grace speaks for me, stand by me and comfort me. and above all;

prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemy. in the presence of my worst enemy SIN. brought me salvation exactly the time of my sin domination. that is to say, my head get oil, in dey run over flow. therefore; surely, heaven is my home. His goodness and mercies will continue to follow me till the time I will go back home, to met Him and stay in His house forever and ever.
