A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Today we look at another name of God, Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord, my shepherd.
  3. Scripture
    1. Psalms 23:1
    2. The Eternal is my shepherd, He cares for me always.
  4. Devotional
    1. Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord my shepherd.
    2. From “Around the Mediterranean with My Bible”: “Shepherding does not change much in Palestine, where wild beasts may descend still upon unsuspecting sheep and suddenly destroy them. The Palestine shepherd lives night and day with his animals. He establishes a degree of intimacy with them that is touching to observe. He calls them all by name and they, knowing his voice and hearing him only, heed. He protects the sheep from thieves and preying animals who would devour them at night, by sleeping in the often makeshift sheepfold and they, sensing his watchfulness, ‘fear no evil.’ He provides pasture and water even in the wilderness and the presence of enemies and they, casting all their anxiety on him, are fed. There is a singular communion between shepherd and his sheep which, after one has visited Palestine and observed it, makes the symbol of the Good Shepherd peculiarly apt and the Twenty-third Psalm strangely moving.”
    3. If you’ve ever had an opportunity to watch a shepherd at work, you understand just what a meaningful title Jehovah-Rohi is.
      1. Provides food and water
      2. Cares for us
      3. Protects us from the enemy of our souls
      4. When we deserve nothing, He puts a banquet in front of us
      5. He never sleeps
      6. He never tires
      7. He keeps vigilance like no other because He is Jehovah and He is Rohi, the Good Shepherd
    4. Writers of the Old Testament called Him Jehovah-Rohi, Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd, Rohi.
      1. Explains His love and care
      2. Explains another aspect of God’s great character
    5. Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord, my Shepherd
      1. Today, think of the way God asks as your shepherd
      2. Provider
      3. Protector
      4. Guide
      5. Spend some time today worshiping Him as Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord, my Shepherd.
