A lot has happened since our last post of “In His Praise” . It seems that the Coronavirus has taken over all the news and much of our lives. Our daily routines have been disrupted and changed. We’re learning to adjust and spend our time in different ways. It can be unsettling and downright scary.
But, although the world around us is changing, we have One that is constant, that has never changed and will never change. That is Jesus Christ. He is our hope, our rock, our shelter in the storm.
Thousands of years ago Psalm 23 was penned to describe the loving care the Father has for His children. These words are just as true today as they were back then. God loves us and cares for our every need just as a loving shepherd cares for his sheep.
Meditate on the words of this beloved scripture and let it bring peace and comfort into your life.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside the 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.”
