A friend sent this to me and I thought it summed up the truths of this beloved Psalm in short succinct terms. The 23rd Psalm was my mother’s favorite scripture.
What I learned in Psalm 23…
The Lord is my Shepherd = That’s Relationship!
I shall not want = That’s Supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures = That’s Rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters = That’s Refreshment!
He restoreth my soul = That’s Healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness = That’s Guidance!
For His name sake = That’s Purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of t he shadow of death = That’s Testing!
I will fear no evil = That’s Protection!
For Thou art with me = That’s Faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me = That’s Discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies = That’s Hope!
Thou annointest my head with oil = That’s Consecration!
My cup runneth over = That’s Abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life = That’s Blessing !
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord = That’s Security!
Forever = That’s Eternity!
Let’s Face it, the Lord is crazy about you and me. What is most valuable, is not what we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives! Don’t ask the Lord to Guide your Footsteps if you are not willing to move your Feet! Even though you can’t see Him, GOD is there for you. When Jesus died on the cross, he was thinking of you!
Now go and have a great day!
