Psalm 23

A World of Abundance (Psalm 23:1)

Psalm 23:1 begins with the Psalmist saying that God is his shepherd, and because of that he does not lack anything. The Psalmist has an understanding of God and an understanding of the world God has created that led him to believe that he would always be taken care of. This is the view of the world that Psalm 23 invites us into.

Green Pastures & Quiet Waters

“He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.” (Psalm 23:2). At first read, this verse infuses us with a sense of calm and rest, which is absolutely true. However, there is an even deeper meaning to this verse, that shows how God will always provide just what we need and invites us to trust in Him every day.
