“And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” – Psalm 23:6b NKJV
“Where will you live forever? In the house of the Lord. If His house is your “forever house”, what does that make this earthly house? You got it! Short-term housing. This is not our home. ‘Our homeland is in heaven’ (Phil. 3:20).”
– Max Lucado, “Traveling Light”
“….what is referred to by “house” is the family or household or flock of the Good Shepherd. The sheep is so deeply satisfied with the flock to which it belongs, with the ownership of this particular shepherd, that it has no wish to change whatever.”
– W. Phillip Keller, “A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23”
O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good…
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, 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 runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” – Psalm 23 NKJV
I’ve enjoyed every entry, every morning. Thanks for leading us through this study of Psalm 23. Very refreshing.
