The Comfort of Psalm 23


In times of trouble or despair, or when you have a need for reassurance – in the form of a spiritual ‘hug’, look no further than Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd (relationship)

I shall not want (supply)

He makes me to lie down in green pastures (rest)

He leads me beside the still waters (refreshment)

He restores my soul (healing)

For His names’ sake ((purpose)

Yea, though I walk through the valley – of the shadow of death (testing)

I will fear no evil (protection)

For You are with me (faithfulness)

Your rod and Your staff comfort me (discipline)

You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies (hope)

You anoint my head with oil (consecration)

My cup runs over (abundance)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life (blessing)

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.  (security)

Prayer:  We may not always know the right way to live, or how to make right choices, but in these times lead us to Your Word and to the comfort we can find in Psalm 23.
