I listened to a wonderful sermon about the classic Shepherd’s psalm, & the pastor (Chip Ingram) read the psalm differently than I had ever heard it, simply by emphasizing the personal pronouns present in almost every line.
“The Lord is MY shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes ME lie down in green pastures; He leads ME beside still waters; He restores MY soul….”
Isn’t that so personal & powerful? The Psalm is also such a good reminder of God’s promise for provision. So, today, rest easy in the assurance that YOU will not be without: rest, restoration, guidance, safety, companionship, peace, comfort, joy, goodness mercy or love.
