“…And I will dwell (rest) in the house of the Lord for length of days.” Part 2

I devoted my last blog entry to those who have yet to put their faith in the Lord; today, I am writing to those who are walking with the Lord, and have placed their trust in Him.

As I was studying for this series on Psalm 23, I was touched again and again by the depth of God’s Word, and the way that every word has such a deep and powerful meaning.
