New Study: Jehovah Raah The Lord My Shepherd

I have decided to do another Bible study here on this blog. It is titled: Jehovah-Raah which is Hebrew for "The Lord My Shepherd".

For many years I have been intrigued by how God calls Himself the Good Shepherd and how He called David from among the sheep to be the first King of His people. Then, of course, He came to earth as a man named Jesus who cared for His people like a shepherd.

In this study, we will look at Scripture and how God is our loving Shepherd. We will look at His covenant with us and the 3 P's:


In God's special revelation (Scripture) He tells us that He will provide for us, protect us from enemies and ourselves, and how He will be with us and bless us with His presence in our lives.

Praise God!!

He did not leave us here alone but is taking care of us like the Good Shepherd that He is.

We will look at how Psalm 23 parallels with Ezekiel 34. We will look at the many passages of scripture where Jesus calls Himself the Good Shepherd and how His statements parallel with Ezekiel 34 as well.

I pray you come away from this study having learned more about the Lord whom you serve and how much He has done and will do for you. In these end times, life will get harder and harder for the Christian. We may even have to endure persecution for our faith. What better time than now to read about how our shepherd will never leave us but will fight with us and contend with us.

But our covenant isn't one-way. We, too, have entered into this covenant promise with God. We, too, have pledged to protect Him, provide worship and acts of service for Him, as well as our faithful presence with Him. Now is the time to learn more about this covenant and how we must have fidelity to our God and Savior Jesus Christ.

The time may come when our faith may be tested beyond any testing we may have had so far in our Christian lives.

I hope you will join me on this journey with our Lord and our Shepherd!


Running the Good Race


Did a 6 mile long run last Saturday. Felt great! Decided to do a 7 mile long run yesterday (Oct. 13th) and did great. May run the Phoenix 10k race in November to prepare for the half-marathon.

Need to do some weights today and some ab work. So far, training has been good.
