Psalm 23

1 Sam 17:20
So David rose early in the morning, left the sheep with a keeper, and took the things and went as Jesse had commanded him.

1 Sam 17:34
But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.”

David Confronted By Nathan
2 Samuel 12

How To Safely & Humanely Handle Sheep
“Sheep were born to be afraid. It’s how they survive. They’re operating on a different plane of perception because they have to.”

The Lord is my Shepherd
A Relationship

John 10:11
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

John 10:28-29
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

His Consecration

“The fly lays its eggs on the sheep, and within twenty-four hours, the larvae penetrate the skin and multiply, and soon the sheep is poisoned. Working with our own flock, I would see a sheep distressed by this affliction, but, thankfully, there is a treatment: backlining. An appropriate ointment is poured on the animal’s head and along its back.”

Matthew 12:24
Beelzebub means “lord of the flies.”
24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”

My cup runneth over
His Abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
