As I'm working on my notes to teach on the valley of the shadow of death this week, God is at work. Seems like every lesson I teach is timely, personal, and that God is having me live it out in the midst of teaching it.
"You are with me." That's the crux of the valley. No matter what. We are never alone for a moment. I don't know about you, but I need to to know that.
As a group, we're up through verse three this week.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
It feels like we're taking a long time to learn this familiar psalm, but focusing on only one verse for a week rather than rushing ahead to what we already know (or think we know) has been good. It's allowed it to sink deep.
