Good Morning, Y’all! This is the best day of your life! Yup. That’s right. This is the day the Lord has made, and it’s only going to get better.
This is probably going to be as different an approach as any I’ve ever taken, but the picture of the Table of the Lord that He sets for us in the midst of our enemies is perhaps one of the least understood and the most rewarding. This is a revelation which, if you can get a hold of, will literally bless your socks off!
Over the past few months, we’ve spent a great deal of time in talking about the Paths of Righteousness, and more specifically, those things that occur as a part of our walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Throughout the past 30 years or so, I can’t tell you how many people I’ve run across who genuinely believe that God is some mysterious being in high places just waiting for folks to screw up so He can come down on them like ugly on an ape.
Back to our discussion on the rod and the staff, here is the complete statement David makes as he describes our walk in the Paths of Righteousness through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. 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)
