Read Psalm 23

Read Psalm 23

1     The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2        He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;a
3        he restores my soul.b
He leads me in right pathsc
for his name’s sake.
4     Even though I walk through the darkest valley,d
I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff—
they comfort me.
5     You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6     Surelye goodness and mercyf shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
my whole life long.g


Its always good to return to the familiar ground of Psalm 23.  Focus your attention on verse 3; he gives me strength, he guides me.  Sometimes God guides us to difficult places; but even in those difficult places we find courage; knowing he is there.


"Even if i go through the deepest darkness, I will not be afraid, LORD, for you are with me."

a Heb waters of rest
b Or life
c Or paths of righteousness
d Or the valley of the shadow of death
e Or Only
f Or kindness
g Heb for length of days
