Psalm 23 - What We Really Need to Know

Psalm 23 - What We Really Need to Know

Pastor Aaron Sutherland

Living in an increasingly broken world full of violence, division, confusion, and societal upheaval, it's easy to be afraid and despair. But we can trust that God will always go before us, beside us, and behind us in every situation and circumstance.

I. GOD GOES AHEAD OF YOU

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
 He leads me beside still waters. 
He restores my soul.  He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

I don’t have to worry about the future because the God who loves me is already there.

God’s word is the lens through which we see God’s path.

II. GOD GOES BESIDE YOU.

Psalm 23:4-5 

Even 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 overflows.

III. GOD GOES BEHIND YOU

Psalm 23:6

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
 all the days of my life,
 and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

God can take the wounds of your past and transform them into the forgiveness of the present, and the healing for your future.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul

Horatio Spafford
