Application of the Fighter Verse for December 17/18

Application of the Fighter Verse for December 10/11

Psalm 23:1-2

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Where to start? How about ‘still waters’? That’s where the good shepherd brings us.

Have you ever taken a walk along a peaceful river? Doesn’t it restore your soul? Yes, but not as well as the Lord does. That restoration is complete. It fixes everything.

And why does he do it? Why does he give us all these blessings? For his name sake. Which brings to mind Luke 2, so appropriate for this month.

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.”

Peace for us and Glory for God. Amen.
