This is one of the most loved passages of Scripture and it has so much to say and it never gets old. Hope you enjoy this passage and my comments of love and appreciation!
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
God is all I want and God is all I need, As long as He is leading and taking care of me, then I am going to be better than fine! There is not a need that I will ever have, that He has not already taken care of!
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
God created me for blessing, peace and fulfillment! He wants to take care of me and grow me for His glory and everyone’s blessing! He will help me to rest and guide my steps so that I might walk safely into and through His perfect will for my life!
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Life is hard, and that is why God has made me strong, but when I am weak, He will restore my strength and rebuild my motivation. There is a way, His way that is best and He shows me, guide me in that direction!
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
My life here on this earth is heading for an ending, but the end is really just a beginning. I have nothing to be afraid of, because God is with me, bringing me comfort in every situation!
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
God does more than take care of me, He blesses me in ways that I could never dream or imagine. His anointing is upon my life and among my most treasured possessions. I have more than I have ever hoped for and much more than I will ever need!
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
I don’t have to chase after the good blessings of God, He has created them to chase after me. I am a child of the King and am so glad that I get to live with Him forever and always for all eternity!
