Psalm 23 Keeps Your Promise

Oh how I love Your Psalm 23
And the visual it takes me on.
Just the first 5 lines,
And I’m completely gone.
To know You are Lord,
And that You are mine,
Let’s me know You Shepherd me,
And gives me peace of mind.
I may desire many things,
But I shall not want for needs.
You lay me down in green pastures.
My mind and body are both at ease.
You lead me beside still waters,
So that I am not disturbed by them.
With this gift of beauty and peace,
I am restored again.
Now I can see Your paths for me,
And walk them in Your name.
Though death or evil come my way,
You will lead me just the same.
You fight my battles and my enemies,
And pour favor on my life.
Goodness and mercy follow me,
And Your house becomes my new site.
Psalm 23 keeps Your promise
To renew my mind and spirit,
For I am strengthened and restored
Every time I hear it.

Staying “In Tune” With Jesus

“So shall we be saved from our enemies”
when we remember to obey our God.
He wants to protect us from all,
but to tolerate disobedience He does not.
“Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies”
but it is the courage from God
that helps us not to flee.
“If God can be for us, who can be against us?”
The answer could actually be the worst
if we do not make sure to pray
and ask God’s wisdom first.
“Oh how the world to evil allures me.
Oh how my heart is tempted to sin.”
We must tell Jesus if we want Him to
“help us o’er the world the victory to win.”
