David wrote the 23rd Psalm before he went out to fight with Goliath.  No wonder he won if this was the reflection of his heart!  We all love the 23rd Psalm, but did you know that it is filled with revelations about Jesus?  Let’s take a closer look.

The Lord is my shepherd…Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd” (see John 10:11).  I shall not want…Jesus is Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord who provides (see Genesis 22:14).  He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters…Jesus, our Jehovah Shalom, said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you” (see John 14:27).  He restores my soul… “By his wounds we are healed” (see Isaiah 53:5).  He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake…Jesus is my Jehovah Tsidkenu:  the Lord our righteousness (see Romans 3:22).  Yea, 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…Jesus is our Jehovah Shaba; He will never leave us nor forsake us (see Deuteronomy 31:6).

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies… “Thanks be to our God, Jehovah Nissi, the Lord our banner, who always leads us to triumph through Christ” (see Exodus 17:15).  You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over…An anointed head is one filled with the revelation knowledge of Jesus, which comes from reading the Bible (see 2 Timothy 2:7, et al).  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever…What follows behind you?  Goodness and mercy.  And it’s not just one day; it’s all the days of your life.

Jesus, I declare that You are my shepherd, my healer, my comforter and my peace!  Amen!
