Psalms: Being Honest with God (New Series)
We don’t have to be bound to our circumstances. We know what David was going through when he wrote this Psalm.
(2 Samuel 15) David was forced to flee into the Judean wilderness with his family and lose his kingdom.
Psalm 23 1The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. We can have peace no matter what we are going through.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Eternal joy outweighs any present struggle.
