God, The Good and Great Shepherd

Hello Everyone,

How are you doing? I hope you are well. Recently, I asked my Bible Study group members to reflect on Psalm 23 by using different Bible versions. They felt refreshed after spending time reading Psalm 23 in different Bible versions. I thought it would only be fair for Mysses Lafunky's readers to benefit from this study. Thus, I'd like you to read and reflect on Psalm 23.

Psalm 23 (TPT version) states:

Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd. 
I always have more than enough - Verse 1. 

He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. 
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss - Verse 2. 

That’s where he restores and revives my life. 
He opens before me the right path
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness 
so that I can bring honour to his name - Verse 3.

Even when your path takes me through
the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
Your authority is my strength and my peace. 
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near - Verse 4.

You become my delicious feast
even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit; 
you give me all I can drink of you until my cup overflows - Verse 5. 

So why would I fear the future?
Only goodness and tender love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterwards, when my life is through,
I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you! - Verse 6.

Did any words stick out to you from the above Psalm 23?

Is there anything that you need right now that was mentioned in Psalm 23?

I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to say ‘hello’ by leaving a comment. 

Yours in Christ,

Mysses Lafunky
