Friday's Freshness

God's Word is always fresh and meets the needs that we have.  Reflecting on Psalm 23:

  • Ps 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd - He is mine, not just a shepherd, by my shepherd.  Sheep need a shepherd.  I was a lost sheep and Jesus found me.  I am now one of His sheep.  I Shall not Want - As one of His sheep, I have no need of want for He meets all of my needs and many of my wants.
  • Psalms 23:2-3  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.   He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  He refreshes me, restores me and leads me in paths of righteousness.
  • Psalms 23:4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  When I pass through death's shadows, He is there comforting, keeping me from the evil one.  The evil on has no claim on my soul for I am a child of the King and shall dwell in His palace someday

Words: Harriet E. Buell, 1877.
Music: John B. Sumner, 1877

My Father is rich in houses and lands,
He holdeth the wealth of the world in His hands!
Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold,
His coffers are full, He has riches untold.
I’m a child of the King,
A child of the King:
With Jesus my Savior,
I’m a child of the King.
My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,
Once wandered on earth as the poorest of them;
But now He is pleading our pardon on high,
That we may be His when He comes by and by.
I once was an outcast stranger on earth,
A sinner by choice, an alien by birth,
But I’ve been adopted, my name’s written down,
An heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown.
A tent or a cottage, why should I care?
They’re building a palace for me over there;
Though exiled from home, yet still may I sing:
All glory to God, I’m a child of the King.
  • Psalms 23:5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Oh how my cup runs over even when I don't realize it!  In the presence of all surrounding enemies, enemies of self, of the devil, of this world), I can feast at His table just by going to the Word of God daily and meditating upon it.  
  • Goodness and mercy follow me everywhere for all of my life.  What would I do without the mercy of God?  
  • I will dewll in God's house forever!  What an overwhelming thought and truth!
