The Shepherd’s Psalm Part 2 (Chinese/English)

2-3 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
2-3节 他使我躺卧在青草地上,领我在可安歇的水边。他使我的灵魂苏醒,为自己的名引导我走义路。

The Shepherd’s Leading
牧者的引领

We have seen that the Lord is my shepherd and that he is our provider.. Now let’s look in more detail at what he provides and how he leads.
我们已经知道主是我们的牧者,他也会供养我们..现在让我们仔细看看他对我们的供养以及如何引导我们。

Please note the key word here, it is HE。 Not only is HE the Lord, but he is the leader.
在这里请注意这个关键词,就是“他”。“他”不仅是主,也是引导者。

A shepherd seeks to give his sheep certain things;
一位牧者在以下事情上寻求并给予他的羊;

Food; all of us need food to survive, sheep like grass, so the pasture that the shepherd finds for them, is called green pasture, it conjures up the image of a lush green pasture filled with lots of grass for the sheep. Likewise, the Lord leads us to a place that is filled with all good things for us, he is an expert at leading us to the right place.
食物;我们都需要食物来生存,羊喜欢草,牧者就为他们找到牧场,提到绿色草场,脑海中就会浮现出茂盛的绿色草地,许多羊吃草的画面。同样,主也会引导我们到一个充满各样好东西的地方,他就像一个专家引导我们到正确的地方。

Water; All of us get thirsty, we need water. The shepherd seeks a place where there is water, and not just any water. These are still waters and this speaks of a place of security.
水;我们都会口渴,我们需要水。牧者会为我们找到有水之处,那不是普通的水,而是被称作安全之地的水。

Rest; We all need to rest, sheep are always on the move, so the shepherd seeks a place of rest for his sheep, likewise the great shepherd of his sheep, seeks and finds a place, where his sheep can be revived and can rest.
休养;我们都需要休息,羊儿们总是到处跑,牧者就会为他的羊找到休息之地。同样,羊的伟大牧者也会找到一个地方供他的羊生存休养。

The Right Path; The shepherd leads his sheep on the right path, he does not and will not lead them into danger and likewise, our shepherd, will not and cannot lead us into danger. He knows the best way to go and he leads his sheep on the right path.
正确的路;牧者会把他的羊引入正途,他没有也不会领他们进入危险之地,同样我们的牧者不会也不能引导我们进入危险。他知道走哪条路最好,也会引导他的羊走在正确的路上。

Why can we trust him to lead us?
我们为什么相信他能够引领我们?

For his name’s sake, because God is who God is. He is faithful, true to his sheep.
为了他自己的名,神就是那个被称为上帝的神。他是信实的,对他的羊也是真实的。

We were sheep without a shepherd, but now we are in the care of the great shepherd.
我们曾是没有牧者的羊,如今我们在伟大牧者的照顾之下。

Trust Him to lead you
相信他会引领你

He is willing and eager to lead you.
他希望也热切盼望引领你

Psalm 23 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,  I will fear no evil, for You are with me;  Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me

诗篇23章 4我虽然行过死荫的幽谷,也不怕遭害,因为你与我同在;你的杖,你的竿,都安慰我。

The Loving Shepherd
充满爱的牧者

The Lord is my shepherd is a truth that applies to God’s people in every situation. We face every enemy in the knowledge that God is with us and stands by our side.
“主是我的牧者”是一个事实,适用于各种情况下神的子民。我们在面对每个敌人时,都知道神与我们同在,就在我们身边。

The greatest fear of anyone is death, fear of this fact grips millions of people, they seek remedies to prolong life, to avoid the fact that one day, they will die. Many will die alone, but not the believer, he/she does not fear this evil.
每个人最大的恐惧是死亡,对这件事的恐惧掌控着数以百万人,他们寻找延年益寿的治疗方法,逃避着有一天终会死去的事实。许多人孤独终老,但信徒不会,他们不畏惧死亡。

Why because the One who is guiding him/her, is the very one who has conquered death and the grave, Jesus Himself.
为什么?因为引领他/她的那位,耶稣本人,已经战胜了死亡和坟墓。

We know that our Savior will guide us by His rod and His staff, He will guide us through many dark valleys, even the darkest one of death. We can fully trust our Shepherd; He has been through the valley before us
我们知道我们的救主会用他的杖和竿指引我们,他会指引我们行过许多黑暗幽谷,甚至是最黑暗的死亡之谷。我们可以完全信任我们的牧者;他已经在我们之前穿过了幽谷。

The Precious word of God, which contains all the promises of God and the Blessed Holy Spirit, will be and is our comfort. They are our assurance, we are sealed by the Spirit, we are HIS. Jesus assures us that none of His true sheep will be lost, Paul states that nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ.
神珍贵的话语,包含神一切的承诺和对圣灵的祝福,将来和现在都会是我们的安慰。他们是我们的保证,我们被基督密封起来,我们是“他的”。耶稣向我们保证,他真正的羊一只也不会丢失,保罗也说没有任何东西能将我们与圣灵的爱隔绝。

Nothing will take you true believer from out of the Father’s hand, not death, not tribulation. Nothing can separate you from Jesus.
什么也不能带一个真正的信徒远离父神之手,死亡不能,苦难也不能。什么也不能使我们远离耶稣基督。

God bless you
上帝祝福你
