He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 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. (Psalm 23:3–4)
The grace of God will find you. No matter where you've gone or how far you've drifted, nowhere is out of the reach of God's grace.
This is the truth behind David's words in Psalm 23:3–4. The focus is on the Lord's active nearness as the shepherd of his people. The Lord makes us to lie down in green pastures. He leads us beside the still waters. He restores our souls and leads us in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
In the Shadow of Death
This is a boundless nearness. It is a nearness even in the valley of the shadow of death.
