The Lord is my shepherd … that is a RELATIONSHIP.
I shall not want … that is SUPPLY.
He makes me lie down in green pastures … that is REST.
He leads me beside the still waters … that is REFRESHMENT.
He restores my soul … that is HEALING.
He leads me in the paths of righteousness … that is GUIDANCE.
For His names’ sake … that is PURPOSE.
Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death … that is TESTING.
I will fear no evil … that is PROTECTION.
For thou are with me … that is FAITHFULNESS.
Thy rod and they staff, they comfort me … that is DISCIPLINE.
He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies … that is HOPE.
He anoints my head with oil … that is CONSECRATION.
My cup runneth over … that is ABUNDANCE.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life … that is BLESSING.
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord … that is SECURITY.
Forever … that is ETERNITY.
Amen … SO BE IT!
