Yahweh-Ra’ah

The LORD My Shepherd

Psalm 23 and John 10 are the most beautiful descriptions of God as our Shepherd, Jehovah Ra’ah. As the Good Shepherd, He dealt with the penalty of sin. As the Great Shepherd, He deals with the power of sin. As the Chief Shepherd, He’s coming to take us from the very presence of sin.

Related Scripture:

Psalm 23; Isaiah 40:11; Hebrews 13:20-21

A - Adoration:

Adore God our Good Shepherd for dealing with the penalty of sin, the power of sin and that He will rescue us from the presence of sin when He returns.

C - Confession:

Confess any word or deed that God reveals to you that has dishonoured Him as your Shepherd.

T - Thanks:

Read Psalm 23 marking all the ways in which God shepherds us and give Him thanks for this. “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk  through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff,  they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

S - Supplication:

Pray for those God places on your heart that need the Good Shepherd to refresh their souls. Pray that God would guide you, your family, our church, our country and world leaders into paths that honour Him the most. Also pray for the Shepherd’s comfort and strength for those you know who are walking through a dark valley. To supplement your prayer time, you may want to also do the YouVersion devotion "Six Days of the Names of God".
