What You'll Discover in this Episode:
You Anoint My Head with Oil
The Lord is our Sheperd but he's also our Wonderful Counselor. This is what divides the world of counseling. In the Kingdom of mankind, man becomes an expert on men and learns about psyche, sociology, psychology and antrophology to try to figure out what makes men tick and come up with theory and most of the time, contradict one another.
As biblical counselors, we study the scriptures from God's perspective to get to know the human heart, understand sin, and understand how people live and react to God. In the Kingdom of God, He is the ultimate counselor. He uses as instruments of His counsel.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, 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.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
In verse 5-6, we depict an image of a sheperd anointing the injured or needy sheep, in such a way that it overflows with blessings. When we walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, that's the remedy for you as the instrument in the Redeemer's hand.
The remedy is so simple - WALK IN THE SPIRIT and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. You won't be anxious, troubled, lose sleep.
We're all troubled and anxious. From time to time, we trek through this valleys of despondency and yet, we know the remedy. Our Sheperd is the remedy to anoint us with oil and we overflow rivers of living water within our hearts.
