“The Lord is My Shepherd” – The Testimony of a Good Journey
Bible Text: Psalm 23 | Preacher: Guest Speaker
Psalm 23 A Psalm of David.
1The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4Yea, 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.
5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
I shall lack nothing
He restores my soul
He leads me in paths of righteousness
the valley of the shadow of death
fear no evil
goodness and mercy
I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Notice the places where the Shepherd leads His sheep:
paths of righteousness
valley of the shadow of death
presence of my enemies
the house of the Lord
Elements of the Journey:
The Restoration. This is where David starts his testimony.
The Walk. There are unknowns, frightful things.
The Battle. There are adversaries.
The Return. Dwelling forever in the house of the Lord.
