I AM || Jehovah Raah

Jehovah Raah, The Lord is my Shepherd. When we think about the Lord being our Shepherd there is one well known verse that usually comes to mind: 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1

In this Psalm’s scripture Jehovah Raah is introduced as a name of God for the first time, but what is a shepherd? In the noun form it means “a person who tends or rears sheep” as a verb it can mean “to guide in a particular direction”. Both of these are applicable to our Good Shepherd.

We are sheep, lost, confused, and unaware of the dangers lurking, but as the Good Shepherd He rears us, brings us into being, brings us up, and directs our paths. Once we enter into relationship with His son, Jesus, He sends us His Spirit to guide our paths. Later in Psalms it says “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105. His Spirit not only instructs and guides us, but Him and the Word light our paths so we know the best way to go.

Jehovah Raah is an incredibly powerful name, and it captivates us from the moment we start being formed in our mother’s womb until we meet him in eternity, and how much easier can we rest and walk into tomorrow knowing that we have a Shepherd that has always been and always will be next to us? Walk confidently knowing you have the Good Shepherd by your side. 

Jehovah Raah, The Lord is my Shepherd.
