Talking about God, talking to God
Psalm 23:1-6 (NKJV)
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads 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 You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
I like to talk about God. I like to tell people about what He is to me, how He cares for me, how He directs my life. I like to talk to God. I like to tell Him about how my day is going, about what my troubles are, to tell him how he encourages me, protects me, and provides for me. When I die, I know that I will spend eternity with Him.
That is what David was saying in this wonderful Psalm wasn't it? I know, his words were far more beautiful than mine, but then again they really are God's words after all. I had never really noticed how David begins talking about God in the third person and then shifts to talking to Him. Good stuff. My cup runs over.
