Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

This Psalm has brought comfort to many who have lost loved ones.  Unfortunately, all too often, we forget this Psalm outside of a funeral setting.  David wrote this Psalm to bring comfort through all times and all ages.  Whether it be death, war or tough times like the coronavirus, this Psalm applies.  This Psalm can bring comfort.

You should also remember these words of Jesus in Matthew 28:20b:  “and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

Let us not forget the promises of God regardless of the situation we find ourselves in.
