So I spoke on Psalm 23 the last couple of Wednesday nights and reminded God’s people that He is with us in the normal everyday places of life, in the dangerous places and in the fearful places of life as well. One day we will be in His abiding place forever and ever! Here’s a cool animation of Psalm 23 that I think you will enjoy!

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.” (Psalm 23:4, ESV)

An interchange between God and Moses:   “And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” And he said to him, “If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.” (Exodus 33:14–15, ESV)

Whether God come to his children with a rod or a crown, if he come himself with it, it is well. Welcome, welcome Jesus, what way soever thou come, if we can get a sight of thee. And sure I am, it is better to be sick, providing Christ come to the bed-side, and draw aside the curtains, and say ‘Courage, I am thy salvation,’ than to enjoy health, being lusty and strong, and never to be visited of God.~ Samuel Rutherford

Are you discouraged by so many things? It is one of the important tools of the devil. Never give room to him.

  • Encourage yourself in the Lord like David.   “And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” (1 Samuel 30:6, ESV)
  • Speak to yourself the Word of God   “And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” (1 Samuel 30:6, ESV)
  • The Lord will help you and deliver you    “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19, ESV)

J. C. Ryle is right. . and this doesn’t just apply to young people:

“It is not open sin, or open unbelief, which robs Christ of his professing servants, so much as the love of the world, the fear of the world, the cares of the world, the business of the world, the money of the world, the pleasures of the world, and the desire to keep in touch with the world. This is the great rock on which thousands of young people are continually making shipwreck. They do not object to any article of the Christian faith. They do not deliberately choose evil and openly rebel against God. They hope somehow to get to heaven at last, and they think it proper to have some religion. But they cannot give up their idol: they must have the world. And so after running well and bidding fair for heaven while boys and girls, they turn aside when they become men and women and go down the broad way which leads to destruction. They begin with Abraham and Moses and end with Demas and Lot’s wife.”

Brothers and sisters, let us not love the world nor the things that are in the world!  (1 John 2:15)

“Little has done more to harm the witness of the Christian church than the practice of filling its ranks with every volunteer who is willing to make a little profession, talk fluently of experience, but display little of perseverance.”–D. A. Carson
