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
I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For His name sake
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
For Thou art with me
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
Thou annointest my head with oil
My cup runneth over
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
So, what problem are you facing today? Give it to God. He’s got it covered.
