God’s Got It Covered

Today’s post isn’t original. That is,  I am not the author of it. In fact, I got it as one of those “pass-it-on” emails that we get too many of, you know the sort.  Thing is, the content was so refreshingly insightful that it truly deserves to be shared. Thus, my decision to post it here.

Besides, I like to be reminded that I am fully covered in Christ. My past, my present, my future–don’t you?  The fact is, if we could fully trust God to meet our needs in every situation, wouldn’t it follow that many of our worries and fears would simply fade?  So here’s another look at Psalm 23–but a different VIEW.  As you read it, consider how God has got us covered–completely!

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 mine enemies
That’s Hope!

Thou annointest 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.

That’s Eternity!

So, what problem are you facing today? Give it to God. He’s got it covered.

    Thank you for this posting. I have never heard it before. My husband and I are in the throws of trying to figure out what we are going to do since my husband lost his job 3 1/2 months ago. I am learning to trust in God and have faith. Thanks again. Please pray for us.
