Psalm 23 gives us a clear picture of God’s love for His children. God cares and watches over us just as a shepherd watches over his flock, keeping them safe away from any predators. The sheep is completely dependent upon the shepherd for provision, guidance and protection. God is our shepherd therefore we should not be anxious for anything but instead trust him wholeheartedly. God our shepherd has provided us with all that we need. He gives us all we need continually, abundantly. The word ‘green pasture’ means that which is always present and never runs dry. He is always supplying our needs and does not get tired. Because the Lord is our provider, therefore we shall not lack anything, but instead relax in His presence, in perfect peace where we are completely reliant on Him. God leads us in the right path. When we are faced with hard times or any trials, tribulations or temptations, we should not become distraught for He is with us and He would not lead us astray. He will turn our tears to joy. He will not put us to shame or make our enemies laugh at us, but instead His favour will pursue us wherever we go. He has the final authority over our lives.
Just as one cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so it is difficult to discern God’s ways ( Ecclesiastes 11:5). Our world is not a random result of some ‘gigantic fluke’ but was created at God’s command. He spoke and it came to be; he commanded and it stood firm. Nature itself talks about the deity of God, his supremacy. The strongest creation evidence is seen in man himself. Unlike other animals, man has got what is called personality,capable to love and to be loved. Man has got a conscience, has got the free will to make to make choices whether right or wrong. Above all we were created with that inner desire or longing to worship; for this reason people who do not know him, seek other ways to worship through the sun, moon, stone, moon, metal, idols of wood, birds, animals and so on. Neither evolution or chance could have produced these results.
