The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want
:-A shepherd never allows any of his lamb/Sheep to be in want of any kind and deems it fit to lift a hurting lamb on his shoulder.
Pointblank;-the Lord is my provider on all sides
He makes me to lie down in green pastures
:-A shepherd takes his sheep to the greenest and fruitful part of pastures so that his sheep can find both comfort and pleasure in his presence
Pointblank;- The Lord makes me happy
He leads me beside the still waters
:- The shepherd leads you beside the still waters but not into it
He restores my soul
;- The Shepherd restores whatever had been lost when you dwell in his presence each day
He leads me in the path of righteousness, for his name sake
:- Walking with God keeps us on the righteous side and It becomes a natural habit of ours to be just like Jesus
Yea, though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I WILL fear NO evil
:-we will surely get to a stage in our lives when all seems dry and the enemy is waging war against your soul but you and I wont fear...why?
Pointblank:- for the Shepherd is with me,
Thy rod and staff, They comfort me
:-the shepherd uses the rod to spank us when naughty in order to guide us aright and then the Staff comforts us, i.e the psalmist finds comfort in this for the bible says.."it is whom He loves, he chastises''
If God doesn't chastise us, then something is wrong big time!
Pointblank:-the presence of His rod and staff gives us the assurance we're still in his will for our lives
You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies
:-I'm sure this is quite obvious
You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over
With all the above the Shepherd does for me, I can round up this post by saying...
Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, Forever.
Have a beautiful weekend darlings
