All God’s Verbs in Psalm 23

This morning I take a deeper look at Psalm 23 and everything God does. 

His verbs? 

He makes us lie down; He leads; He refreshes; He guides; He is with us; He comforts; He prepares a table; He anoints.

Our verbs? 

We lack nothing; we fear not; we overflow; we dwell. 

All day long, I experience the abundance, the peace. All day long, I dwell. 

Psalm 23
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths

    for his name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk

    through the darkest valley,

I will fear no evil,

    for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

    they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me

    in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

    my cup overflows.

6 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.
