Psalm 23

The meeting with the SAT(IRS) wasn’t too bad but they are saying that I must register as a small business since I have the flatbed truck.

Our boys, led by Quique, won the semi-final soccer game and will play Sunday for the area championship.

Three government criminal investigators came asking about the boy who was shot. He is still alive.

Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want”. This Psalm sits between Psalm 22, the cross of Jesus, “My God, my God why have You forsaken Me” and Psalm 24 which reveals the Coronation of Jesus coming for His sheep.

He is the Savior Shepherd-He pardons us from sin.                                                          He is the Good Shepherd- He paid the penalty for our sin.                                                         He is the Great Shepherd- He saves us from the power of sin.                                       He is the Chief Shepherd- He saves us from the presence of sin.

Psalm 23 :2 “He leadeth me.” This means He provides me with rest. “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures” Then He says “He leads us by the still water” which means we are refreshed and renewed. Then in verse 3 “He restores my soul” and because of our sin He restores us to the place as though we never sinned. “He leads me in the paths of righteousness meaning that we now have a right standing before the Father.

Psalm 23:4 He now protects me. “Yes though I walk through the shadow of death I will fear no evil”. Psalm 23:5 He supplies all I need. “He prepares a table for me before my enemies.”

Psalm 23:6 is a tremendous verse. He provides goodness and mercy for me ALL the days of my life.
