Names of God: Jehovah Rohi

Jehovah Rohi is The Lord my Shepherd. A shepherd tends to and cares for their flock the same was God tends to and cares for us. Sheep need their shepherd. They are easy prey without him watching over them, just as our enemy is on the prowl to devour us. We need our Shepherd’s protection against the wiles of the devil. Sheep get lost without their Shepherd. We are so easily swayed in the wrong direction when we don’t seek our Shepherd’s will. I’ve veered off path more than once, and He’s used His staff to pull me back in. As I was reading about this name of God, I was reminded of a name all over Facebook right now- sheeple. It is being used to describe the people listening to the instructions to stay home. The thought behind it is sheep (people) are just following behind the masses and not thinking for themselves. God gives His people wisdom when you follow after Him. A good shepherd takes care of his flock and God is unlike any shepherd in the world. He makes you to lie down in green pastures, leads you by still waters, and restores your soul. He alone will meet your needs with no agenda. He is our Shepherd and it is an honor to be part of His flock. Are you troubled in your spirit or a have a need (physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual)? Cry out to the Lord our Shepherd for whatever that specific need is and He will tend to your needs. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
