His Ways... Day 9... Alex Glass

Today's devotion... by Alex Glass... is from Psalm 23:

"1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

These verses are quite possibly the most familiar to most people. I can't think of a funeral that I have been to when these words have been used or printed somewhere. Most years at VBS growing up as a kid, I was asked to memorize these words. Most people, regardless of their familiarity with church, will recognize these words.

And yet... the picture behind him is so powerful. God as a protecting shepherd carrying caring for His sheep.
