Oh I know I blogged about Psalm 23 just a few days ago, but I can’t help it! As I am writing, they are offloading the tables for the bistro. I am just so thankful that I battle to find words to express myself in prayer. I am in tears. Tears of thankfulness. God is so good to us. When the first table was put down on the cement, I thought of Psalm 23 again, more specifically, verse 5. But just to make it extra special, I will quote the entire Psalm again, this time from The Message.
1-3 God, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
Like the Psalmist today, I can say that my cup brims with blessing. God is serving a six-course dinner to us right in front of the enemy. We are blessed beyond anything we could have imagined a year ago.
God wants to bless you too. He wants to be a Shepherd to you too. He wants to revive you. He wants to lift your head. Will you let him?
