The 23rd Psalm from the Lord’s perspective

Last Sunday, I heard a message touching on the 23rd Psalm, and it helped me to see the Psalm from God’s perspective.

I AM your shepherd; you shall not want.

I make you lie down in green pastures.

I lead you beside still waters.

I restore your soul.

I lead you in paths of righteousness for my name’s sake.

Even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
fear no evil,
for I am with you.

My rod and my staff,
they will comfort you.

I prepare a table before you
in the presence of your enemies;

I anoint your head with oil;
your cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you
all the days of your life,
and you shall dwell in my house forever.”
