TOPIC: DIVINE DIRECTION (Part 1)
The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want. – Psalm 23:1
In the past few days we have been on the topic of vision. It is important to know that in the pursuit of vision, there must be proper directions in order to get to that place you have seen else one might be misled.
David said, the Lord was his shepherd. Beloved who is your shepherd? Who is leading you in this journey of vision?
David went ahead to list the benefits of having the Lord as his shepherd. These things are testimonies of David’s experience of having God in his life as his shepherd.
It is important to take note of the words David used. He said he shall not want because the Lord is his shepherd. In verse three he said…
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness…
The Lord leads him in a righteous path and because he has the confidence that the Lord is the one leading him, he affirms that even though he walks in the face of death he would not be afraid. He went further to say that God prepares a table before him in the presence of his enemies, meaning there would be enemies, vision attracts helpers and enemies too, but when the Lord is the one leading you, those enemies don’t matter.
This particular scripture shows us that God never promised us an enemy free life in our pursuit of vision rather He lets us know that these enemies would gather around you and only watch you become all God has made you to be. So leave the league of those always complaining about what enemies are doing and start living the higher life with God as your Shepherd.
To be continued…
