A while back, my Mother in law handed me a booklet called the “Promise Finder”. As I began to look through it, I noticed some pretty interesting things. But I stuck it on my office shelf and knew that I would revisit it again but not sure when. A Man had left this booklet at the restaurant where my Mother in law manages. So she picked it up and brought it to me the next time my in-laws visited my wife and I. The writer of this booklet's wife had just recently just passed away. And he looked for comfort from the 23 Psalm. He had studied the 23 Psalm and included his notes in the booklet. As I began to pray and seek direction on our next study topic for our Wednesday night bible studies, God directed me back to that little blue booklet on my shelf. So I pulled it out and began to study and with his help and the Lords, I spoke on “Dissecting the 23 Psalm”
Psa 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; ……….This is Relationship.
I shall not want. ……….This is Supply.
Psa 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: This is Rest.
he leadeth me beside the still waters. ….....This is Refreshment.
Psa 23:3 He restoreth my soul: ……….This is Healing.
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness. …….This is Guidance.
Psa 23:4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..This is Testing.
I will fear no evil: ……….This is Protection.
for thou art with me; ……….This is Faithfulness.
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. ……….This is Comfort.
Psa 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: …….This is Favor.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. ……….This is Abundance.
Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:….This is Blessings.
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD ……….This is Safety.
for ever. ……….This is for Eternity.
I don’t know the man’s name that left the little blue booklet. I wish I could give him credit, but the Lord knows and I believe will bless him. But it is always refreshing to read one of the most beloved chapters in the book of Psalms, the 23 chapter. So when you are down or feeling of no value. Look what our shepherd does for you! Remember He loves you and cares for you. You can be full and running over! You can find Jesus Christ and His love at every one of our services. Come and be with us and experience His great mercy.
