Word: The Shepherd’s Comfort

The Shepherd’s Comfort

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, NIV
This is, no doubt, the most popular of all the Psalms. Even non-Christians have found this Psalm comforting and encouraging in times of difficulties. The Lord, the Shepherd in this Psalm, comforts us by providing for us; giving us rest; leading us in the right direction; renewing and restoring our strength; guiding and guarding us; anointing us with fresh oil, and showing us the full extent of His love. I personally think that this is an all-purpose Psalm. It provides the kind of comfort anyone may need in any circumstance.  

The word ‘comfort’ in Latin means ‘to give strength.’ Therefore, the Lord, our Shepherd wants to equip us with both physical and spiritual stamina to cope with the pressure of life. It is comforting to know that we are not alone in our valleys; He is there with us. It is equally important to take note of the instruments by which God gives us comfort: ‘Your rod and Your staff.’ He uses the rod and staff of His word to discipline and to direct us. Do not rebel when He sets some boundaries for you, it is for your own good. He is with you wherever you go today.
