Now and Forever
Series: Pitch Perfect
David basically says two things: one about life and one about death or life after death. Two things will be true of you if the Lord is your shepherd. The first is that God’s goodness will follow behind us all the time. Understand that doesn’t mean that everything that happens to us will be good. What it does mean is that God will use everything that happens to you for your good.
God knew about the benefits of music to help us deal with stress, to be healthier, happier and even holier which may explain why the largest and longest book in the Bible is a book of songs. They are called psalms and we have been and are going through the deepest, darkest, national stress of our lifetimes. Of the 150 psalms in this collection, the 23rd Psalm is the most popular and best known. It is only 118 words in English, but it is probably the most familiar 118 words in the hundreds of thousands of words that are found in the Bible.
