Into Practice . . .

He Leads Me . . .

Psalm 23:1-6 NLT

[1] 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. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.

[4] Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

[5] You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.

[6] Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.

Reflection . . .

We will be looking at Psalm 23 today and again tomorrow. It’s probably the most well known portion of Scripture ever, so we should take a good look at it. There’s so much to glean!

In order to be led by the Lord along right paths (paths of righteousness), we must commit ourselves to the Lord and His ways. The key is to seek the Lord, His will and depend on Him to show you which way to go.

Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Psalm 37:5 NLT
Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you.

The tree of faith grows only in the heart that craves the supreme gift that Christ died to give; not health, not wealth, not prestige, but God!

John Piper (b. 1946)
