He is with me.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (Psa 23:4)

Isn’t that the beginning and end of it all? No matter what we are suffering, no matter what we are going through, as long as He is with us then we can go through it. Through the waters, through the floods, through every trial and tribulation and vexation of heart and soul and mind and body. If we are found in Him and He is in us and with us then we shall prevail, we shall overcome. And not only prevailing and overcoming but also victory. There is victory in Jesus and that is why there is and can be joy even in the midst of the valley of the shadow of death. For when He is with us, and we are aware of His presence, He is our green pastures. His presence restores our soul. His presence is our still waters.

A few years ago I needed a round of shots in my spine for old injuries from a fall in construction many years ago. I had them before, they are not pleasant. I was asked prior to the shots if I needed a valium to calm me down. Like a good Scotsman I said no. I had people praying for me. Just before going in as I waited in a room, kinda regretting my decision on the valium, the Dr came in and asked me if he could pray for me. I was taken aback. I said of course. Then when I was lying face down on the table the radio was on. Some terrible rock music was playing. I heard the Doc tell someone to turn that of.

Just a moment later, a nurse started singing a hymn I had never heard before. The presence of the Lord filled the room and I quietly shed some tears. The Lord, in His manifest presence had come into the room to let me know He was with me. The nurse finished her hymn and the Doc said to me “your very lucky, in twelve years she never sung for me.” It all seemed otherworldly. When the injections were finished and I could look up, I asked who had sung the hymn. A little black nurse said “it was me.’ She came over and I hugged her.

I find in Him I have no want, He is my all and all and He is my everything. And because He is my everything He is my path and He leads me and guides me. He anoints my head with oil and my cup is overflowing, whether in the valley of the shadow of death or the glorious mountaintops of His transfiguration. This table that He sets before me is an everlasting and eternal one. There has been served upon this table the delicacies of goodness and mercy and love and forgiveness. A feast fit for a hungry heart that pants and longs for the good things of the Lord. Saint, today is the day that you are invited to sit down at this table and the goodness and the mercy that you shall find there will follow you all the days of your life.
