Psalm 23 is one of the most famous and deeply rooted in Christian tradition; but it is also a reminder for the believer to feel guided and accompanied by the firm and protective hand of God.

 David was a shepherd and he knew that the sheep trust the shepherd in any situation. When the sheep are hungry, the shepherd leads them to green pastures where they have enough grass to eat. When they are thirsty, he leads them to a quiet stream where they can drink water. When the sheep are in danger of being eaten by wild animals, the shepherd is their protector. The sheep can trust the shepherd in every situation.

  Every day we are faced with situations of great difficulty and difficult choices. Many times we ask ourselves: "Who can I trust?" The answer is: "Jesus". The Bible tells us that Jesus is "the Good Shepherd" and that we are His sheep. Like David, we can say: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want." We can trust Him in every situation.

  Dear Lord Jesus, you are the Good Shepherd and we are your sheep. We put our trust in You.
