Psalm 23:1-3 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
Commentary:If you get to the place in your heart and your mind that you agree with verse 1 of Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need), you will have reach a level of maturity that most people never attain. In verse 2 & 3 He talks about rest and renewal. With total trust and faith comes rest and renewal.
The second part of Psalm 23:3 says, He guides me along right paths. Trust + Faith = Rest and Renewal and that helps us to hear and do the right things God has planned for us. No trust + no faith = exhaustion and weakness. That leads to hearing and doing the wrong things.
More on the rest of Pslam 23 another day. This is plenty to meditate on for today.
God help me to have the kind of trust and faith that the psalmist has in Psalm 23. I want to be completely satisfied. Give me rest and renew my strength. - Amen.
Tonight when you get ready to go to sleep, pray for total trust in God. Let go of every worry and put your faith in Him.
