Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
Today’s Thursday Encouragement:
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 me in the paths of righteousness for His name 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
As a child I memorized this chapter and to this day it brings me comfort. Comfort to know that God is my protector and provider. Comfort to know that where ever I go He is with me, I have nothing to fear. And a promise for the future; a promise of living with God in his home forever!
Dear friends, my prayer for you today is that you may know this peace and have the assurance of God’s loving care for your present and your future.
Now it is your turn!
