The providence of God is a most reassuring, yet mysterious, doctrine of Scripture. It requires faith in God’s foresight, goodness, and tender love. It recognizes that green pastures, still waters, paths of righteousness, dark valleys, and the presence of enemies are all within the sphere of His providence. Faith in God’s watchful, personal care derives comfort from God’s protective rod and corrective staff. Faith in divine providence eradicates fear of evil and engenders confidence in Jehovah’s goodness and mercy. Trusting the good Shepherd and His providential care enables one to experience the abundant life while upon this earth and eternal life in the house of the Lord forever.
What a Shepherd!
