In life there are certain pinnacles that we are privileged to reach. Whether it is a family goal, a job goal, a personal goal, a long-time-coming goal or an unexpected surprise event or circumstance, these carry us to a mountaintop of thrill and satisfaction.
There is a passage of scripture that brings me to that pinnacle as I read and absorb its message. It is the 23rd Psalm....the PSALM OF PSALMS!
As our 17-year-old granddaughter and I were driving along one day, we began to discuss the words of Psalm 23. We explored what it means to us and this responsive prayer was the result...
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want...You watch over me and meet all my needs.
He leads me beside still waters...You take me to quietly refreshing places and speak to me there.
He restores my soul...You re-ignite my life with your purpose.
He leads me in the path of righteousness for His name sake...You guide me into right decisions for which I give you glory.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil...when tough times come, even those accompanied by great loss, I will face them with strength and courage as I trust you.
Your rod and your staff they comfort me...You will protect me and fight for me which brings me much-needed reassurance.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies...Your table of blessings is spread out before me even when I’m with my adversaries.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over...I am covered with your favor from head to toe as you fill me with your spirit.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life...Because of you, Lord, both good reports and overwhelming mercy will be my legacy.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever...When I move out of this body, I will move into your presence and live with you in timeless wonder.
MAY THIS PSALM OF PSALMS TAKE YOU TO LIFE’S GREATEST PINNACLE!
