Psalms 23:

The Lord is my shepherd;

There is nothing I lack.

He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.

He renews my life; He leads me along the right paths for His name’s sake.Image result for Still water

Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff- they comfort me.

You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of YHVH as long as I live.


Psalms 50

If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world and everything in it is Mine.

Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?  Sacrifice a thank offering to Elohim, and pay your vows to The Most High.  Call on Me in a day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you will honor Me.

But Elohim says to the wicked: ” What right do you have to recite my statutes and take My covenant on your lips?  You hate instruction and turn your back on My words.

When you see a thief you make friends with him, and associate with adulterers.

You unleash your mouth for evil and harness your tongue for deceit.

You sit, maligning your brother, slandering your mother’s son.Image result for the power of the mind

You have done these things and I kept silent; you thought I was just like you.  But I will rebuke you and lay you out the case before you.

Understand this you who forgets Elohim, or I will tear you apart, and there will be no rescuer.

Whoever sacrifices a thank offering honors Me, and whoever orders his conduct, I will show him the salvation of Elohim.”

The first Psalm is a beautiful recounting of a Shepherd boy and his relationship to YHVH.  Surely the boy recognizes chastisement as a good thing, and loves Elohim for divesting the enemy of power against him.  But why?  Why does Elohim give the boy power over his ememies?


The second Psalm describes Elohim’s relationship to the bulk of His people.  It is commonplace in Israel to bring sacrifices during feasts and special events.  It would be wierd not to.  Elohim says here that it is both good and bad to bring him offerings.  Does that mean one man can be both good and bad in bringing an offering?  No! Cain and Able both brought offerings to YHVH, but only one of them was acceptable.  This is a Psalm, not from a righteouss man to Elohim, but prophetic pleadings from Elohim to an unrighteous man.  <The Son of Man did not come to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him>


Has conviction found its way into your heart?  It feels terrible, but stop fighting it and bring an acceptable offering unto The Mighty Ones.
