Mixed Emotions

Read Psalm 23:1

A girl asked, “Why did you break up with Joe?”

“Because,” answered her friend, “my feelings toward him aren’t the same.”

“Are you returning the ring?” the girl continued.

“Oh, no!” she answered. “My feelings toward the ring haven’t changed one bit.”

As with that friend, so with some followers of our Lord. They’re more interested in the gifts than the Giver.

But not the Psalmist. He wanted the Shepherd, and in having Him he had His supplies.

In Him lies strength for our weakness, hope for our despair, healing for our sickness, and power for our temptations.

The Bible says, “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”

Is He your Shepherd?

Prayer: Father, we thank Thee that Thou art always guiding us in the ways Thou wouldst have us to go: in Christ. Amen.
