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 right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I 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 my whole life long.
Food For Thought:
This is a passage of trust. The Psalmist places his trust in God and knows that God has the Psalmist’s best interest in mind. God will comfort the Psalmist in the midst of difficult situations. God will watch over the Psalmist. God will care for the Psalmist. Write a psalm of trust to God today. What are you especially thankful for?
Risen and ascended Christ,
you surround us with witnesses
and send us the Counselor
who opens our minds to understand your teaching.
Bless us with such grace
that our lives may become a blessing for the world
now, and in the age to come. Amen.
