In the 23rd Psalm, what is David actually saying?

      The Lord is my Shepherd -- THAT'S RELATIONSHIP!

      I shall not want -- THAT'S SUPPLY!

      He maketh me to lie down in green pastures -- THAT'S


      He leadeth me beside still waters -- THAT'S


      He restoreth my soul -- THAT'S HEALING!

      He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness -- THAT'S


      For His name sake -- THAT'S PURPOSE!

      Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of

death -- THAT'S TESTING!

      I will fear no evil -- THAT'S PROTECTION!

      For thou art with me -- THAT'S FAITHFULNESS!

      Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me -- THAT'S


      Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of

mine enemies -- THAT'S HOPE!

      Thou anointest my head with oil -- THAT'S


      My cup runneth over -- THAT'S ABUNDANCE!

      Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days

of my life -- THAT'S BLESSING!

      And I will dwell in the house of the Lord -- THAT'S


      Forever -- THAT'S ETERNITY!

      May God give you strength and courage to greet each

day with joy!
