      JESUS THE GOOD SHEPHERD
      Psalm 23
      This psalm is the most common to all people in the entire Bible. It is often used in many instances and by people going through different experiences in life.
      However, through God’s help I want to bring this message to you in a new light. In life, we all go through divergent phases and different seasons, but at the end of it all, everything centres back on one person, ‘GOD’. This is why the psalmist, by the name ‘King David’, begins the chapter by stating “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want’. Kindly bear in mind that he was a very favored King by God, leading a people set-apart by God Himself. Being a King, he enjoyed the privileges and honor of royalty. He saw it all, he had it all and he knew it all. Even as he busked in this glory, he still acknowledged the LORD.


      He opens the story with The One who made him King over Israel. He does not exalt himself first, but gladly chooses to point us to the One who made him to be who he was.

      He humbles himself and says it’s not ‘I’ but ‘The LORD’ who has brought me this far. He acknowledges that even though I am a king, there is The One who is higher than me who is wiser than me, stronger, greater and more superior than me. ‘You may wonder, why are you delving into a story that is well-known to me?’

      Here is why, either you are in a position of honor like David was, or you are on the way heading there, but this does not really matter. Please don’t misquote me, being blessed and highly favored as King David was is worth pursuing, but what we all really need is “THE LORD”-THE GOOD SHEPHERD”.

      There is no better foundation for anything we do, than JESUS CHRIST THE GOOD SHEPHERD. Let me say it in a much clearer way, ‘THE BEST FOUNDATION’ TO BUILD YOUR LIFE, YOUR ACADEMICS, YOUR CAREER, YOUR BUSINESS AND ALL YOUR ALL ENDEAVOURS, IS THE LORD JESUS.

      David allowed God to be who HE is the best, in his kingdom and this The Good shepherd. Please allow Jesus to shepherd your academics. Let Him shepherd your thoughts, let Him shepherd all who you are. The Good shepherd knows the way, you don’t. He is the good shepherd why? Because you will not want, He will make you lie down in green pastures and it doesn’t matter what you will face because the Good shepherd will always be with you. We all want to be successful in life and its good, but allow Jesus to shepherd you there. He alone knows where your success is. There are many successes in this world, some built upon witchcraft, sorcery and other negative foundations. ONLY ONE SUCCESS IS DURABLE, SAFE, GUARANTEED AND TRUSTWORTHY, THE SUCCESS BUILT UPON THE GOOD SHEPHERD.

      I pray that these words will come alive in you and begin to effectively change you. God bless you for taking the time to read.
