Psalm 23:1-6

1 A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

2 In green pastures you let me graze; to safe waters you lead me;

3 you restore my strength. You guide me along the right path for the sake of your name.

4 Even when I walk through a dark valley, I fear no harm for you are at my side; your rod and staff give me courage.

5 You set a table before me as my enemies watch; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

6 Only goodness and love will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the LORD for years to come.

David saw God as a guide, a refuge, a provider, a protector, a father, and so many other things. We’re all familiar with these words, but it pays to take the time to really think about them. Look what God will do for us, if we could only let him. Imagine what things can be like if we truly remained with Christ, every day, 24-7. I’ve had short stretches of feeling this way, but I don’t come close to all day, every day. That’s the goal I’m pushing toward.
