The 23rd Psalm – A New Look…

Magnificent Promises

The 23rd Psalm is probably one of the best recognized verses in the Bible.  We memorized it as a child and have heard it read many times over.  But have you really looked at the words and their meaning?

Psalms 23


The Lord is my Shepherd
 That’s Relationship!

I shall not want
That’s Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
That’s Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters.
That’s Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul
That’s Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
That’s Guidance!

For His name sake
That’s Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
That’s Testing!

I will fear no evil.
That’s Protection!

For Thou art with me
 That’s Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me,
 That’s Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
 That’s Hope!

Thou anointest my head with oil,
 That’s Consecration!

My cup runneth over.
 That’s Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
 That’s Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.
 That’s Security!

Forever!
That’s Eternity!
