May 30–Living the truth of the 23rd Psalm–Part 9…Choose to Live it!

Part 9–We (and by we I mean I and my 3 blog readers!) have just spent 8 days of reading through the 23rd Psalm–a few verses at a time–and asking the LORD to show us what living the truth of His Word via the 23rd Psalm means each day. Whether it is a day of sadness, surprises or celebration. 

Read this 23rd Psalm yet again. Read it now in its entirety–listening for God’s living and active truth in His holy and eternal Word.

The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

He leads me beside quiet waters,

He restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for You are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Take some time to listen to God, to breathe and be quiet.  And ask yourself honestly as you reflect on the words of this 23rd Psalm:

  • Do you believe it?
  • What are you going to do about it?

God’s Word is living and active. It is not meant to be merely read or heard. God’s Word is meant to be actively, intentionally lived out in our lives.

I encourage you (and me!) to Choose to Live it!–with all that you are and all that you do. Choose to Live it!–within all of your life and through all of your actions.

God is our LORD. God is our Shepherd. Choose to Live God’s Truth–Daily…All the Days of our Life!

 In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
