Psalm 23 is one of David’s most iconic Psalms. When he wrote the Psalm he describes the Lord as a caring shepherd and dependable guide. By submitting to God’s commands, David expressed his understanding that God was his only hope for eternal life and security. Most people recognize verse 4 as one of the most well known verses in Bible, whether they are “religious” or not, because of how frequently it is quoted; 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. While David was one of the bravest men to walk the face of the earth, even he recognized that God was the only one who could walk him through death. No one gets out of this world alive, but God gives us the ability to walk through death in this life and onto eternality with Him in the next.
