Trouble is everywhere. Dont be anxious.
What does Ps 23 say about this mess? What is the relevancy?
There is always Hope
David had his fair shaire of worries & difficulties – Goliath, Saul, Absalom etc.
Initially we feel worried & after we look back and wonder why v.4 God is with me – have no fear.
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
