Scripture: Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
In our daily lives, we often face challenges and uncertainties that can lead us to feel lost or overwhelmed. But Psalm 23 reminds us that we are not alone. The Lord is our shepherd, guiding us through every situation, providing us with everything we need.
When we feel weary, He gives us rest in green pastures and leads us beside still waters, restoring our souls. Even when we walk through the darkest valleys, we need not fear any harm, for He is with us, comforting us with His rod and staff.
He prepares a table for us, even in the presence of our enemies, signifying that He provides for us abundantly, even in the midst of adversity. Our cup overflows with His blessings, and His goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives.
Dear Lord, thank you for being our shepherd, for guiding us, providing for us, and comforting us. Help us to trust in You in all circumstances, knowing that You are with us every step of the way. May we dwell in Your house forever. Amen.
May this devotion bring you peace and encouragement as you navigate through your day. 🙏
