My souls know right well that the pastures are green and the waters are still ( at peace ) because Christ is there.

I love Psalm 23 it is a Psalm my mother would recite this all through the day it was her favorite psalm, she taught it to me had me recite, taught me the true word of what this meant to the saved children of Christ. I now today read first before each bible study meditate upon it, and apply to every situation in my life. I may even find my self reciting through the day as well. Just wanted to share that,

Forever Be Blessed All

Hunger and Thirst For More of Jesus's comment on 2020-12-04 21:32:55:

Jesus said "I AM the Bread of Life".

The Word of God, is bread.

Jesus told satan out in the desert on a 40 day fast: IT IS WRITTEN..........

Satan lost every argument.

We need to be so full of the Bible, that satan doesn't have a chance to deceive us.

Two scriptures work well together:

1 Perfect Love (Jesus) Casts out...Fear (big demon)

2 Fear hath Torments (he has other demons that torment us.

Jesus gives us the Authority to use His Name, and His Word: to bind the demons,

Cast them into outer darkness, forbid their return;

To set the captives free, to set at liberty those who are bruised and to heal them.

Tiny testimony: one time when I was a baby Christian, I saw myself in a vision of what Jesus saw in me.

"A big table was laid out with fabulous food: milk, meat, pizza, barbecue...". I had my elbows up and was dragging food over to my plate, eating like I was starved. To my right I hear this most wonderful laughing. I look up a sec to see other people's eyes bugged out. I slump down with a chicken leg in my fist and I look to see who's laughing: it was Jesus! He was leaning back in His throne laughing with me; not at me."

Jesus wants us to have a healthy appetite for His Word; the Bible. Ask and The Holy Spirit will Teach you EVERYTHING.

Earlier that day an older Christian saw something I was reading and he shouted at me loud, "you cannot read college level Bible!!!! Get back into Bible Milk". He stalked off and left me feeling really stupid.

( I had been reading how the Body of Christ is to work together.)

There is a reason to choose the Holy Spirit to be your Teacher; he helps us Pray; He tells us how to war and win.

If this encourages you to wade in deep with Jesus, the you are the one Jesus was looking at. You can have as much as you desire. He rejoices in your efforts. We are HIS BODY. If you draw close to Him, He will draw close to you.

Best of all pleasure you can have, is to hear Jesus's laugh. He's real.

The Holy Ghost spoke the words "still waters" while in prayer. I know that God wants me to rest in Him, he has a great plan for my life. First, I must taste of His goodness and know that He is God!

Psalms 23 is a consolation, when you are down you find lifting, when you are discourage you find courage. when you beleive in the Lord.

Those who find Jesus find peace. The Saviour gives us of His Spirit, and through the Holy Ghost, we learn patience, wisdom, contentment and godliness... Those who spend time in prayer find rest in a Saviour that will never leave us nor forsake us.


irene's comment on 2013-09-29 23:49:49:

This verse communicates REST! When life throws you situations of unrest, God will give you rest in the midst of the turmoil, and literally provide moments of quiet reprieve and peace and the assurance that he is in control
