Psalm 23 (NIV)
A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Generous Jesus, You provide me with all that I need. You provide a place of comfort for me by being in Your presence through prayer and Your Spirit refreshes my soul.

I have confidence in Your grace and care even when things are not going well because I trust that Your goodness and mercy will follow me. I look forward to the joys of Your salvation. Amen
