Day 11 - Psalm 23

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd. He gives me everything I need.
    He lets me lie down in fields of green grass.
He leads me beside quiet waters.
    He gives me new strength.
He guides me in the right paths
    for the honor of his name.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid.
    You are with me.
Your shepherd’s rod and staff
    comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
    right in front of my enemies.
You pour oil on my head.
    My cup runs over.
I am sure that your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life.
And I will live in the house of the Lord

These verses pretty much stand alone.  The 23rd Psalm was probably one of the first scriptures memorized.  It is such a peaceful chapter!

But I had never really realized one thing............ this chapter is written "present tense".........   

For all you non grammatical loving people... lol.... that means it is written for NOW.

He is my shepherd - right now.. not was... He is.

He is in my present.. and will provide and supply all I need in the now.  What a comfort!
