Tip of the Day:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
When I was young, I used to think about this verse when someone was on their deathbed, or at funerals. However, we can learn the heart of God, bring comfort to our souls, and encouragement to our hearts through these beautiful poetic words. Isn’t it wonderful to know that no matter the depth of our valley, even in deep darkness or life threatening situations, Jesus is there with us. We do not need to fear anything; not man, not death. As a shepherd protects his sheep with his rod to fight off wild animals, Jesus protects His own. Just as, the shepherd uses his staff to guide straying sheep, Jesus leads and guides us. Trust in Jesus Christ let Him comfort you, but also guide you in God’s perfect plan for you.
