A Different Look at Psalm 23
This is an eye-opener; probably we never thought nor looked at this Psalm in this way, even though we say it over and over again.
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 the 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 anointest 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!
What is most valuable is not what we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives!
Meditation: Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. – Psalm 100:3
