Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Shepherd - The Door - The Mercy Of God - The Goodness Of God's Suffering
Remember When Entering
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, [and] into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, [and] bless His name. For the LORD [is] good; His mercy [is] everlasting, and His truth [endures] to all generations.
Even as children of God, it’s important to remember our true nature, and the manner in which we were made children of God. God is the Shepherd. This means He owns the pasture and is in control of it. He is the Provider. He is the Protector. He is the Leader. He knows. We as sheep, are weak, foolish, and pitiful. The LORD is Yahweh, the Creator of all things. We are sheep. He is good to reveal Himself to us; to offer His protection and provision. The LORD is good to treat us mercifully despite our nature. We don’t belong in His presence, but He restrains the judgment we should get, so as to make His everlasting goodness accessible.
