I delight in watching over My sheep. I don't worry and fret over the enemy that seeks to steal, kill and destroy. Regardless of what it looks like in the natural, he can never truly win. I will always require payment from him because I am the God of justice.
Do not fear when the enemy comes against you, for I am with you. I know where you are, and when you are lost and alone, confused and afraid. I will comfort you. I will pour My oil on your head and lead you to cool refreshing waters. I will hold you close and calm your fears. If you wander, I will carry you until you learn to stay close by Me.
I am the Good Shepherd and I always take care of My own. The enemy can never really snatch you from My hand, even when you wander. So take heart, little one! Enjoy the journey and rest in My love for you!
Isaiah 59:19 New Century Version (NCV)
Then people from the west will fear the Lord, and people from the east will fear his glory. The Lord will come quickly like a fast-flowing river, driven by the breath of the Lord.
Psalm 23 The Message (MSG)
1-3 God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through Death Valley, I’m not afraid when you walk at my side. Your trusty shepherd’s crook makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.
