Read: Psalm 23:1-3
Psalm 23 is one of the most recognized scriptures in the Bible. Many of us learned and memorized it in Sunday School. During the different stages of our life, we should reexamine scriptures because they speak to us in different ways as we change and grow in our relationship with Christ.
With all the societal ills in the world, it is sometimes hard to believe that God is near, which makes it a perfect time to revisit this scripture. Each morning, when we listen to the news, it reminds us of the sinful nature of how some people are living. Do not be dismayed because God still offers hope. He remains our shepherd. He still watches over us in this chaotic world. He is always with us in the good and bad times. Listen closely to hear his voice. He is there. He continues to be a beacon that leads and guides us.
He guides us but we also have role to play in this relationship. Each day, read the Bible, pray, and look for the good. Doing these three things helps refresh and feed our souls.
God is still performing miracles all around us. You see his work when you wake up and breathe each morning, the joy in your child’s eyes, the love of your family, new opportunities, or a beautiful day. Every day, God performs big and small miracles. Keep believing because the Lord is our shepherd. We thank him for his continued grace and mercy.
