The Twenty Third Psalm is one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written. In this article I want to share with you a contemporary, positive affirmative view of the Twenty Third Psalm. We will do a verse-by-verse analysis of the Psalm with commentary.
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
The Lord is my Shepherd and that which I AM aware of being is the sheep that follow me.
My consciousness is like a voice calling in the wilderness of human confusion. In the practical application my awareness of being is Lord and Shepherd of my life. I know I shall never be in need of proof or lack the evidence of that which I am aware of being. Knowing this, I shall become aware of being great, loving, wealthy, healthy and all other attributes that I admire.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
My awareness of being magnifies all that I am aware of being, so there is ever an abundance of that which I am conscious of being. The Lord’s measure (man’s conception of himself) is always pressed down, shaken together and running over.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
There is no need to fight for that which I am conscious of being, for all that I am conscious of being shall be led to me as effortlessly as a shepherd leads his flock to the still waters of a quiet spring.
He restoreth my soul.
He is the Great I AM! He restores that which has been lost.
A prosperous soul is the key to health and financial prosperity.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Now that my soul is restored so that I know I AM – my kingdom is restored. My kingdom – which became dismembered due to a lack of knowledge is now fully restored. I shall make the right use of this knowledge by becoming aware of being that which I desire to be.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
Yes, though I walk through all the confusion and changing opinions of men, I will fear no evil, for I have found consciousness to be the solution to life. Having in my own case restored it to its rightful place and dignity, I shall, in spite of the confusion, out-picture that which I am now conscious of being.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. In the face of seeming opposition and conflict, I shall succeed, for I will continue to out-picture the abundance that I am now conscious of being.
My head (consciousness) will continue to overflow with the joy of being one with God.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Because I am now conscious of being good and merciful, signs of goodness and mercy are compelled to follow me all the days of my life, for I will continue to dwell in the house (or consciousness) of being one with God (good) forever.
