TOPIC: Allow Jesus To Care For You (DCLM Daily Manna 8 February 2024)

KEY VERSE: “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

TEXT: Psalm 23:1-6 (KJV)

1 The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He made me lie down in green pastures and leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 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 comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:

We live in a world that trumps personal freedom and liberty. We are taught by society to defend our fundamental human rights as individuals. This means living without checks, defining and pursuing our narrow self-interest, and disregarding guidance and leading from any quarter. But a Christian who is so self-centered is on a downward slide that would inevitably end in disaster and heartache.

Recognizing this, David surrendered his rights and preferences to God, promptly embracing the Lord’s protection. He acknowledged the Lord as his Shepherd, ensuring he did not lack anything good. He saw that God was guiding him to places where he would find refreshing sustenance. Whenever he went astray, God restored him to fellowship and led him on the path of integrity and righteousness. With time, he became confident that even if he faced death, he had no cause to be afraid because God was with him.

And like a true Shepherd, whether in rebuke and chastisement with the rod or under instruction and guidance with His staff, the Lord always provided him with comfort. God supplied his daily needs, even amid hostile activities. In response, the psalmist extolled the virtues and benevolence of the Almighty God and openly exclaimed to all who cared to listen, “Surely, (God’s) goodness and mercy shall follow” him all his lifetime. In gratitude, too, he vowed “to dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

For believers today, Jesus Christ is our Good Shepherd (John 10:11), Great Shepherd (Hebrews 13:20,21), and Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4). He loves, cherishes, and cares for us, provided that as disciples, we follow Him obediently and trustingly like sheep.

God is trustworthy; you can always depend on Him.

Deuteronomy 25-27
