Trusting the Shepherd    Insights from Psalm 23

"The meaning and helpfulness of this perfect little psalm can never be exhausted so long as men and women like sheep wander and need guidance, and so long as they learn to find it in God their Shepherd."     --W.T.Davison

Countless generations--including ours--have turned to Psalm 23 for comfort during times of trouble. Its brief six verses offer words of compassion, hope, and encouragement that never wear out. "Though this little psalm was written in a different time and place," says Robinson,"its lessons are as up-to-date as the 21st century.

These ancient words, with their imagery drawn from the life and heart of David, the shepherd-king, offer incomparable hope in a complex world.

"Trusting the Shepherd may seem easy." says Robinson as he ponders this well-loved psalm. "But anyone who tries it finds that  life makes it hard to do." David, who himself lived life to the hilt, offers his own resounding testimony about the trustworthiness of his Shepherd. The Lord of Psalm 23 is the only one who can walk us safely through this world and into eternity. Only when we place our faith and trust in Him can we sing with David, "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want." And it is then that we can affirm with conviction, based on God's promise, "I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
