A Series in the Psalms
July 3, 2022 • Pastor Tim Haugen • Psalm 23
Honest faith, honest lament, honest confession, and honest praise is found in the Psalms - the song book of Israel. The Lord is enough - V1. I shall not want The Creator Redeemer God is enough When you have the Lord in your life, your deepest real need has already been satisfied. Contentment is a readiness to receive whatever God gives or allows in the basis of personal confidence in Him. Humanity is needy, as sheep need a shepherd. They are easily distracted. Vulnerable. Dependent. You will not get far in your walk with the Lord unless you are dependent on Him. There is joy in saying the Lord is my shepherd! This dependence leads to- v 2-3 green pastures, still waters, restoration of the soul, and paths of righteousness Our shepherd leads to REST & RESTORATION. He leads us towards satisfying contentment. Steward contentment through continual thanksgiving.
