They Saw the Light - David Part 4

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Over the last three weeks I have been preaching from Psalm 23 - the Shepherd Psalm. I have been using The Message version of the Psalm.

God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing.
   You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
      you find me quiet pools to drink from.
   True to your word,
      you let me catch my breath
      and send me in the right direction.

 Even when the way goes through
      Death Valley,
   I'm not afraid
      when you walk at my side.
   Your trusty shepherd's crook
      makes me feel secure.

 You serve me a six-course dinner
      right in front of my enemies.
   You revive my drooping head;
      my cup brims with blessing.

 Your beauty and love chase after me
      every day of my life.
   I'm back home in the house of God
      for the rest of my life.

I ask you today to simply meditate on these words.  It was written by the hand of a shepherd who knew his SHEPHERD.  I believe the Lord will reveal fresh revelation and anointing into your life in the same way He did for another group of shepherds on the hills of Bethlehem.
