'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Who is YOUR SHEPHERD? Please consider the 'resume', if you will, of 'The Good Shepherd', God, 'the Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ'. From both, the Old Testament and the New Testament; I, nor you, nor anyone, will ever find one - any better! Nor can anyone find - 'any better pasture'.
'Come'. [Matthew 11:28] 'Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.' [Psalm 34:8]
[Psalms 23:1,2; 79:13; 80:1; 95:7; Isaiah 40:11; 53:7; Jeremiah 31:10; Ezekiel 37:7, 24; Amos 3:12; Matthew 18:12; 25:32; 26:31; Mark 14:27; Luke 15:4; John 10:2, 3, 9, 11, 16; 21:16; Hebrews 13:20.]
My beloved Friends. Let us see what my favorite 'pastor' of ole times has to say about the veracity and truthfulness of Our Good Shepherd's 'ever presence'. [Isaiah 55:1 [Matthew 11:28; John 4:14; 5:40; 6:35, 37, 44; 7:37-39; 14:3, 6, 18; Acts 1:11 Ephesians 2:1-10; Philippians 2:13] Why, we could not have believed unto salvation, without God working through the Holy Spirit. For you see, without the Holy Spirit's work, we could have never believed, and we certainly cannot proceed any further without Him. [Luke 11:13; 12:12; John 14:26; 20:22; Acts 1:5, 8; 2:4; 4:8, 31; 8:15; 10:38, 44; 11:16; 13:2, 52; 16:6; 19:2; 20:28 and I could go on and on.]
How much more sure, He will never forsake one of His 'sheep', once we have believed, even 'as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death' - into Eternity!! [Psalm 23:4] Now:
Morning, May 25 [Posted August 26, 2018.] from Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening Devotions, with personal highlights. [SMQ] “Forsake me not, O Lord.” Psalm 38:21
Frequently we pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of trial and temptation, but we too much forget that we have need to use this prayer at all times. There is no moment of our life, however holy, in which we can do without his constant upholding. Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation, we alike need the prayer, “Forsake me not, O Lord.” “Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.”
A little child, while learning to walk, always needs the nurse’s aid. The ship left by the pilot drifts at once from her course. We cannot do without continued aid from above; let it then be your prayer today, “Forsake me not. Father, forsake not thy child, lest he fall by the hand of the enemy. Shepherd, forsake not thy lamb, lest he wander from the safety of the fold. Great Husbandman, forsake not thy plant, lest it wither and die. ‘Forsake me not, O Lord,’ now; and forsake me not at any moment of my life. Forsake me not in my joys, lest they absorb my heart. Forsake me not in my sorrows, lest I murmur against thee. Forsake me not in the day of my repentance, lest I lose the hope of pardon, and fall into despair; and forsake me not in the day of my strongest faith, lest faith degenerate into presumption. Forsake me not, for without thee I am weak, but with thee I am strong. Forsake me not, for my path is dangerous, and full of snares, and I cannot do without thy guidance. The hen forsakes not her brood; do thou then evermore cover me with thy feathers, and permit me under thy wings to find my refuge.
‘Be not far from me, O Lord, for trouble is near, for there is none to help.’ ‘Leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation!’”
“O ever in our cleansed breast,
Bid thine Eternal Spirit rest;
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure and worthy thee.” Amen. Amen.
Please allow me to share with you: 'Birthday Remembrance and Reflections'.
Since being conceived and carried in my Mother's 'Cancerous Womb', out of which I came to full term and was born 'loud' and healthy on August 26, 1949; since coming to faith in Jesus, on August 12, 1956 - to this very day, August 26, 2018; in all my total years of life  and experiences, HE HAS NEVER, EVER - FORSAKEN ME!! HE HAS BEEN TRUE TO HIS WORD!!
If you are in Jesus Christ, PLEASE, take the time today to truly meditate and praise, thank and glorify Him, for great is His Faithfulness, through it all!! Amen. Amen. BUT, IF YOU ARE NOT 'SAVED'......
For those of YOU who have not this 'blessed assurance' because YOU have not 'come to Him', yet - well, what, oh what, are YOU waiting for Him to do?? Remember Calvary?? What more do YOU NEED HIM TO DO BEFORE YOU - REPENT, TURN TO HIM, BELIEVE, TO RECEIVE AND ACCEPT BY FAITH - YOUR ETERNAL LIFE - BY AND THROUGH FAITH IN THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS CHRIST, GOD THE SON? SURELY, OH SURELY, YOU DO RECOGNIZE THAT LIKE ALL OF US BEFORE SALVATION, OUR OWN LIVES ARE NOTHING But SORDID AND FILTHY. BUT THEN, WHEN ONE RECEIVES THE FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS, TO BE PARDONED, COUNTED RIGHTEOUS BEFORE A HOLY GOD; WELL....., YOU JUST HAVE TO COME AND TAKE IT FOR YOUR OWN SELF.
Today, will you 'come'??? DO YOU HEAR HIM NUDGING YOU IN YOUR HEART? I pray that you do and that you will finally, come to Him, in the Blessed, the Precious Name of Jesus Christ, my 'personal God', Lord and Savior!! Amen. Amen.
