Psalm 23

This psalm by the David – the poet, singer and king – is one of the most loved and studied passages in scripture. But I have found that God can take even the most familiar parts of his Word to teach and reassure me.

The last time I meditated on it these six aspects stood out.

Provision…still waters, green pastures and a prepared table

Place………..the house of the Lord

Purpose…….a path of righteousness for His names sake

Peace………..I will fear no evil

Person………the Lord

Protection….thy rod and staff

The Holy Spirit will cause Biblical information to become Spiritual illumination that will lead to personal transformation. How much He will change us through this short look at David’s masterpiece depends on our state of openness.
