A Deeper Look at Psalms 23

These thoughts are not original with me, but I treasure what i have copied in the margins of my Bible about Psalms 23.

The Lord is My Shepherd; - that's relationship
I shall not want. - that's Supply

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; - that's rest
He leads me beside the still water. - that's refreshment

He restores my soul: - that's healing
He leads me in the paths of righteousness. - that's guidance
For His name's sake. - that's purpose

Yes, thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, - that's testing
I will fear no evil; - that's protection
For You are with me. - that's faithfulness
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. - that's discipline

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; - that's hope
You anoint my head with oil; - that's consecration
My cup runs 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 (Photo by Bill)

God really cares for us!

Beautiful photo. I have Psalm 23 memorized. Every now and then, I just whisper it to myself. There's a lot of comfort in that verse.
