Psalms 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

Tonight bible study had a lot of great points to Psalms 23. Even though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil, for you are with me. What is this verse really saying? How many of us are in our darkest valley or walking in a valley at all? To my understanding being in the valley is a state of mind for me considering that I will fear no evil because thy Lord is with me. Verse 1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures he leads me besides quiet waters, he refreshes my . He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. God sends us through different trials to see if we are going to take the path that he as presented to us or are we going to be guided down the path of wrong and folly. We have choices and there are right choices and wrong choices and by study the scripture and living life the way Jesus Christ wants us to live is the only right choice. Just from my own experience it is a struggle to do what Jesus would do but every day I will follow (being a sheep) and ask God to guide my steps in this struggle of life. Verse 5 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the LORD FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!
