10/12/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Psalm 23

The 23rd Psalm =
is arguably the most well-known, most memorized, most beloved passage in =
all of the Scriptures. Millions of people of people have recited it =
during times of stress, despair, war, and disaster to give them strength =
and courage. People have used it during times of death, sorrow, and loss =
for a source of comfort and security. Still others read or cite the =
Psalm as a foundation for showing thankfulness and gratitude for their =
blessings.

 

Whatever be =
the case, this Psalm has many assurances that many people have, most =
likely, never considered or realized. Today’s version of the 23rd =
Psalm is a verse-by-verse breakdown of each verse ending with one of =
God’s promises. It is my hope and prayer that this =
“breakdown” of the 23rd Psalm will serve as a source of =
encouragement and comfort for you.
