Pictures in Psalm 23

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

What I think about the word pictures:

one who provides
one who cares and loves
one who owns us, who bought us with a price

Green pastures
cool and refreshing rest
vast feeding ground of the Word of God
beauty and peace (Dugalug)

Still waters
the deep and quiet working of the Spirit

Valley of shadow of death
the lowest point of our lives, seven to the point of near death
that point in life when you need someone to save you. In comic books, it is the point where it looks like the villian was going to win (Dugalug)

His rod and staff
his sovereignty
his care
his power
his leading

A prepared table
Passover (Dugalug)

Overflowing cup
goodness upon goodness, blessings upon blessings

And Julia sent me this link, a very good read on the Psalm.

  1. Sometimes I think the valley is all the time this side of physical death until our faith is sight.
