A Different Way to Look at The 23rd Psalm

psalm_23

This may be an eye opener; perhaps many have never looked at this psalm in this way, though they say it over and over again.

  • The Lord is my Shepherd – that’s relationship!
  • I shall not want – that’s supply!
  • He maketh me 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’s 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 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!
