The comforting words of the familiar twenty-third Psalm resound through the centuries. Written by David in his darkest despair, this song of hope holds a treasure of God’s grace and provision for all believers. David faced a revolution led by his beloved son Absolom. Forced to flee for his life, he relied on the true Source of his security and prosperity—the Lord Jesus Christ. David’s journey through the death-shadowed valley gives us insight into how a mature believer endures suffering in disaster and triumphs over his enemies. Like David, the believer who pursues Bible doctrine and advances to spiritual maturity will be rewarded with blessing and prosperity in time and in eternity. “The Lord is the one who keeps on shepherding me,” David wrote, “I cannot and do not lack anything.”
