A psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me.
Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
The very first line of the 23rd Psalm says it all; “The Lord is MY Shepherd.” It is the key to Christian living, comfort and confidence. The Shepherd is:
- Permanently responsible,
- Powerfully responsive, and
- committed to a Personal relationship with us
