Worship Wednesday…Psalm 42

There’s a quiet place
That gives me peace when I’m alone with You
There’s a hiding place
Your Spirit’s always there when I’m confused
Only You can purify
All this world won’t ever satisfy
My heart, it cries

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul needs You Lord
We’re thirsty God, You’re the living water
And my soul needs You Lord
I need You Lord, need You Lord
I need You Lord, need You Lord

I’m a stranger here
Thirsty ’cause I know it’s not my home
Like a desert here
I need Your living Word for these dry bones
Jesus fill us up again
With Your presence flowing deep within
New life begins

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul needs You Lord
I’m thirsty God, You’re the living water
And my soul needs You Lord
As the deer pants for the water
So my soul, needs You Lord
I’m thirsty God, You’re the living water
And my soul needs You Lord
I need You Lord
I need You Lord
I need You Lord
I need You Lord

Quench our hearts and fill this space with Heaven like a flood
Holy One reign down on us with Your consuming love
Quench our hearts and fill this space with Heaven like a flood
Holy One reign down on us with Your consuming love

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul, needs You Lord
I’m thirsty God, You’re the living water
And my soul, Jesus, it needs You Lord
I need You Lord
I need You Lord
I need, I need, I need you Lord
I need You Lord

The Good Shepherd

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalm 23 (NASB)

This psalm never gets old for me. The more I read it, the more revelation the Lord gives me. In every season we go through, He can bring a fresh promise that applies to it because His Word is living and active.

I sure do need that reminder in the season I am in. Everywhere I turn these days, there is something around me changing. So much of my life feels unsteady, and though I’m not one for change, the older I get, the more I’m learning to embrace it. That is most assuredly a work of the Holy Spirit.

In times of transition, I desperately need to remember that Jesus is my Shepherd, that He is a good Shepherd who will tend, guide, and instruct me. I need to remember the weight of my circumstances doesn’t rest on my shoulders because after all, I’m not God. Sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I think I know better. Sometimes I think my plans are perfect or that I can fix everything.
