Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
Have you ever found yourself lost and driving down a dark, deserted street? Somehow you took a wrong turn and now you’re not quite sure where you are or how to get back on a road that is familiar and well lit.
According to this verse from Psalm 23, even on the darkest, most deserted road, God is with you. He knows exactly where you are and how to bring you back to safety. Not only does He know where you are, He is right beside you!
Maybe, as you read this, you are safe in your room but deep down in your heart you feel lost and uncertain about the path your life is taking. Why not stop right now and ask God to guide you out of this dark and scary place? As you pray, let Him know that you know that He is always with you, promising to protect and comfort you. Trust Him that He will lead you back to a place where you feel safe and at peace.
