The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Psalms 23:1-3.
Profession, position & location are not keys to your portion but the covenant. The covenant relationship begins with a genuine encounter with the Shepherd. The Shepherd knows and owns the green pastures. Doing the same thing at the same location does not guarantee similar results. Help is needed to become great in life in every location. The covenant is God’s package for helping men to greatness. The good shepherd leads to green pastures from scriptures. The words of à Shepherd is his instruction & direction kits. Those that have a shepherd hear his voice. The greatest asset of the sheep is the voice of his Shepherd in case you do not hear the Shepherd’s voice, it’s possible you have none. Without a Shepherd, the green pastures are a mirage.
“And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him:for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him:for they know not the voice of strangers.”John 10:4-5.
Green pastures are not stumbled upon or accidentally located. It is intentionally planted, discreetly maintained and located with directions. It is the paths of righteousness; directions from the Shepherd is key to locate it. Those that keep guessing end up as wanderers, those that are guided reach the green pastures. The good Shepherd goes before the sheep, his presence is an asset. His presence makes the sheep comfortable, protected and reassured. Green pastures are the covenant Right of The righteous. They do not visit the green pastures of life, they live there. When your location and lifestyle is not the green pastures of life, it’s time to change yourShepherd. It’s not about location, profession or position, it’s about the covenant. I have a good Shepherd; I am not a bastard.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd:the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”John 10:10-11.
