Psalm 23



 
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.
Amen
Have a beautiful weekend darlings

  1. you know i have never looked at Psalm 23 like this, but you just broke it down. My husband has this habit of stating the things he wants to do, even though he doesnt know where it will come from, he just believes it and my dear it all comes to pass. You will not even believe it. NIce work. thank you.

    Psalm 23 was the chapter we crammed in primary school, as read on demand and the last verse..surely goodness and mercy ...is a every day prayer point.
