Who is your Shepherd?

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

A Spiritual metaphor from Dr.Tony Evans: If you stare at the lion, he’ll scare you. If you focus on the cage, you can handle him.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27

To need a Shepherd, you must recognize you are a sheep.

Sheep are the dumbest of animals. One of them can walk in a circle and the rest begin to follow it, until they are all walking in a circle thinking they are going somewhere. You never see trained sheep, or sheep jumping through hoops. They are too dumb. That is why the Bible says we are like sheep that have gone astray.-Tony Evans

Keep your eye on the Shepherd, and you will make it through the valley.- Tony Evans

We believe He can take us to heaven; we are just not sure He’s got our back on earth.-Tony Evans

God can not only meet your need, but give you more than enough to satisfy.-Tony Evans

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not lack anything.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

4 Yea, 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 runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

“The Lord is your shepherd; He got ya, and you are covered.”-Tony Evans
(Note: Spelling the word “shepherd” is tricky.)
