Good morning, Family:
I pray that the peace of the Lord is dwelling with you, no matter what your circumstances appear to be currently. In the 23rd Psalm, David cries out to God. It’s not a cry of fear, but a cry standing on Who and What God said he was and would do.
God was faithful to David and in the 23rd Book of Psalms, David made his prayer a prayer of Faith. David knew that God went before him to make his way straight and God allowed his Grace and Mercy to follow David, wherever he went.
The question for all of us is, “Are we allowing God to lead us, so that His Grace and Mercy will follow us, no matter where we go?”
English Standard Version
The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my (A)shepherd; I shall not (B)want.
2 He makes me lie down in green (C)pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.[a]
3 He (D)restores my soul.
He (E)leads me in (F)paths of righteousness[b]
for his (G)name’s sake.
4 Even though I (H)walk through the valley of (I)the shadow of death,[c]
I will (J)fear no evil,
for (K)you are with me;
your (L)rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You (M)prepare a table before me
in (N)the presence of my enemies;
you (O)anoint my head with oil;
my (P)cup overflows.
6 Surely[d] goodness and mercy[e] shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall (Q)dwell[f] in the house of the Lord
May the peace of our Lord be with you always.
