Psalm 23

When the Pharisees questioned Jesus in Luke 17:20-21 as to when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God doesn't come with observation.  You won't be able to say here it is or there it is.  For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.


Part I   Provision

THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Just as God planted the Garden of Eden and provided man with plenty before he put him there to dress it and to keep it, God promised to supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 Paul said, My God shall supply...If THE LORD is not your God, you will not be able to say, I shall not want.  In John 10:11 Jesus said, I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. The LORD God sent his Son Jesus into the world, not to condemn the world, but to be the Savior of the world.  (I John 4:14, John 3:16-17)  Make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life and refuse to allow want (lack) in your life by hearing, believing and receiving the word of God in your heart, protecting that word received in your heart by meditating it and saying the same thing until it manifests in your life.


Part II   A Place of Rest and Peace

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  The LORD feeds, leads and guides me.  Psalm 36:7-8 says that the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.  They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.  John 10:27-30 say Jesus' sheep hear his voice, he knows them and they follow him.  He gives them eternal life and they shall never perish.  He and his Father are one.  Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.  Hebrews 4:9-10 say, There remains a rest for the people of God.  Cease from your own works as God did from his and enter into his rest. In John 14:27 Jesus says, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you...Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Part III   Restoration and Righteousness

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting (restoring) the soul; (Psalm 19:7)  Our soul prospers as we walk in the truth of the word. (III John 2-3)  We are commanded to love the LORD with all our heart, soul and mind. (Matthew 22:37).  Loving God is trusting him in every way and for everything spiritually and naturally.  For his name's sake, he leads us in righteousness making the way straight before us. (Psalm 5:8)  The kingdom of God in you is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Romans 14:17)  Proverbs 11:18 tells us, the desire of the righteous is only good.  By Jesus Christ, those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life.  Grace reigns through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:17, 21)
