The Good Shepherd - Best Friend

“Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23‬:‭1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

TPT commentary: The word most commonly used for "shepherd" is taken from the root word ra'ah, which is also the Hebrew word for "best friend." This translation includes both meanings. The unique term for shepherd is ro'eh tzon-"lover of the flock." This teaches us that a shepherd was not just a responsible overseer, but a caring father figure, tending to his flock out of a deep sense of love. Shepherds were also fierce protectors of their flocks. Jesus is the Fierce Protector of his people.

TPT commentary: Or "I lack nothing." What a wonderful declaration over your life! To never be in lack, always possessing more than enough. Our God meets our emotional, physical, and spiritual needs.

God is my best friend and my protector. Imagine for one second you are a sheep. Day in and day out, someone sets the routine for your feedings, they lead you and guide you for the days you’ll be sheared and other days you’ll wander from one pasture to the next! But one thing is for certain, you have a Father, A Good Shepherd. He never sleeps nor slumbers. He is always watching over you. No wolf can devour you when He has his rod and staff. No harm can over take you inside the boundaries of his fence. He loves you! You obey your best friend because you know He ultimately loves you!

He will even leave the 99 pastured sheep for the one who wanders away! He is the Good Shepherd! Let HIM shepherd your sheep like day today and let HIM define your boundaries! You will not lack! He will provide and bring provision. He will deliver!
