“Thou art with me.” Buechner and Bonhoeffer on Fear and the Other. — Macedonian Ministry
It is also perhaps the most misinterpreted. To many, this is a Psalm of desperation, resignation, and gloom. In truth, it is perhaps the preeminent Psalm of prosperity. Before we go to the truth of God's Word on this subject, let's expose the fallacy. Here's some of what many think of when they hear the 23rd Psalm:. Many view this verse as eluding to some melancholy fearful form of false and pseudo peace.
We won't continue in this vein, but I'm sure you are beginning to get the picture. By many, the 23rd Psalm has historically been interpreted in the most negative and pessimistic of ways. Perhaps you also were deluded into believing some of the negative and false meanings of this great and mighty Psalm? Well, I'm here to tell you, it's all a lie. That's right, straight out of hell itself, it is one more deception the devil has been able to sell many in the body of Christ.
Brothers and sisters, it is nothing less than a part of the devil's grand deception to keep us from receiving the truth and our full inheritance through Christ. Now here's the truth: The 23rd Psalm is a statement of what we receive through Christ. When it was written it was a prophetic statement of our rights and privileges, our inheritance, that is, what we were to receive as a deed title, through Christ. We'll go through the Psalm verse by verse with the aid of Strong's Concordance to help us uncover the expanded meaning of the original text.
The Strong's reference numbers will be provided, in case you wish to see for yourself, that this interpretation of God's Word is accurate.
To those that are not already familiar with Strong's, it is a concordance, that is, an index, of all the words that comprise the Bible, and their meaning and origin in the original Greek and Hebrew texts. So here we go:. This is saying, that as long as you trust in, and depend on, and believe on Him, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and yes, this is also a Messianic Psalm you can expect and depend on Him to provide your every godly need.
Boy, that's quite a difference isn't it!

And before very long, the drinks became strong And unloosed their worst nature of things. As the music revived, the pain came alive And created havoc all day! Now thanks to the meds, the three blades are dead, Although they have been known to revive If coughing occurs, or bending berserk Causes dancing pains to come alive!
The moral herein you can take with a grin To hopefully laugh at the pain, Giving power to my goal of taking the role To conquer again and again. Our Lord never moves; He is steadfast and true, God is always waiting to calm; When trials become harder and harder to bear, He soothes all of my wounds like a balm. Yet just as the veil of the troubles of man Splits to reveal sunlight, not shade, I have a pattern of moving away, Disconnecting the link that we've made.
But He never leaves, just continues His vigil, Watching o'er me patiently; For, without fail, when I seek Him again, God's sitting right there next to me. Good times are peppered with bad times, you see; So our walks in His garden each day Must always continue, no matter the venue, And never must I turn away! A calm is more stressful a time than the storm! When the men in the boat were in fear of the storm, Jesus commanded the water to still; They realized with awe it was God in the boat When the tempest died down at His will.
As I sail in my skiff, both in calm and churned waters, Seeking to reach the safe shore, I'll let God pilot me in close proximity, Toward the harbor that I am bound for.
valley of the shadow of death
Yes, wherever I'm going, I know for a fact God will always be waiting for me. He's already there, poised to answer my prayer That I asked of Him down on my knees. Changes My mama always told me To try to look so neat, With hair all washed, with dresses ironed, Shined shoes upon my feet. The power it wields can be contained; But changes it bestows Can be attained, my courage drained— If I allow it so. I draw my sword of warfare; I call in all the troops. And with a mighty surge of Faith, I yell a loud war whoop!
For God is by my side, you know, He raises high his staff— The winds erase the sandy line That barricades the path. The angels in their chariots fly, Lined shoulder next to shoulder; While Christian soldiers with their spears March onward, ever bolder. His staff he drops, the winds subside, He gathers me to Him.
