“He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” (Psalm 23:3)
My dear friend, the Lord has given you a wonderful promise verse from Psalm 23:3. This verse says “He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” That is why David called God as ‘my shepherd.’ The shepherd leads his sheep carefully. The cattle and sheep have the tendency to wander in the desert, but then it is the shepherd who leads them in the right paths.
Likewise, we also tend to wander into wrong paths in life, but then today the Lord promises you that He will lead you in the right paths. As you love the Lord, the Lord calls you His sheep and says “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27). In the next verse, the Lord says “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”
What a lovely Shepherd He is for us, isn’t it? He is a sweet God. He will lead you very gently. When you go through troubles in this world, He will hold your hand and lead you tenderly. Therefore like David, you should say ‘Lord You are my shepherd. You will lead me in green pastures and besides still waters.’ May the Lord do everything for you from now on dear friend because our Lord Jesus has come into this world just to seek and to save the lost. Our Lord Jesus is the perfect Shepherd for you and will lead you in the right path.
My loving Heavenly Father,
Thank You for today’s promise. Hold me securely with Your right hand. Lord, lead me in the right path and prevent me from wandering away from You. For Your namesake, lead me and bless me.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
