Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4 KJV
It is a great art to learn to walk through the shadowy places.
Do not hurry; there are lessons to be learned in the shadow that can never be learned in the light.
You will discover something about His ministries you never knew before.
His rod and His staff they will comfort you–
the one to guide, the other to protect you,
and the sheep that are nearest will know the most of both.
When we go into the valley of the shadow of death
we come so near Him that we look into His face and say,
not “He is with me”–that is too formal, too far away–
but “Thou are with me.”
The need and the usefulness of Christ is seen best in trials.
W. Y. Fullerton.
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear or dread no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide],
they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4 Amplified Bible
Trust God for your day, . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
