ThE Lord Is My Shepherd ( by Fenny West)

Meditation and Declaration

The Lord Is My Shepherd

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 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.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

My Father, Creator if all, King of all Creation, Lord of Glory, You are my Shelter, my Shield, my Fortress and Shepherd, Holy One, Mighty God.

All the glory and the honour, all power I ascribe to You, O God, God of gods.

You rule from sea to sea. Your reign is forever.

Good Shepherd, Great Shepherd, Your are my Provider, Protector, Counselor, Comforter, Guard and Guide. You guide me to green pastures and still waters. You lead me in the path of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Thank You for making me the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Thank You for making me a Tree of Righteousness and a planting of the Lord. Indeed, the Righteous shall flourish like a palm tree.  I grow like a cedar of Lebanon. Because I am planted in Your house, I flourish in Your courts. I remain fresh and flourishing, producing abundant luscious fruit even in my old age and fruit remain, giving glory to You, the Lover of my soul. In You I live, move and have my being. I will ever declare and proclaim and affirm that there is no unrighteousness in You. You are the Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious You are long suffering, everlasting and ever-patient and abundant in goodness and in truth.

You are the Great Restorer, like the father of the prodigal son. I am Your treasured possession and You have reserved the best for me. I do not lack anything good. You have made provision for me, more than I can ask, imagine or dream of. And Lord I am grateful for this.

Even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, You are with me. And I am not afraid because You said, ”I will be with you forevermore.” I am forever conscious of Your presence. In Your presence is fullness of joy and at Your right hand there are pleasures forever. In Your presence is life and peace that is boundless. 

That You for Your Holy Spirit Who remains my Standby, Advocate, Advantage, Comforter, Counselor, Extraordinary Strategist, Anointing that breaks every yoke, Wisdom, Guide, Intercessor, and Friend. He give me revelation knowledge and adorns my life with multiplicity of gifts more than my mouth can tell and my mind can imagine.

Thank You for removing every form of fear from me. You are my Helper, therefore I will not be afraid of what man can do to me. I am more than a conqueror and complete in You. You are my light and my salvation. Of whom shall I fear. You have not given me a spirit of fear but that of love, power and sound mind and boldness. 

You make a spread, a sumptuous sup, a table of delicatessen even before my enemies. And You anoint my head with oil and my cup overflows.

Therefore, I will say confidently, fully assured that goodness and mercy, Your twin angels, called to minister to me, Your heir, shall follow me all the days of my life.

I give You all the glory, honour, power, dominion and praise, forever and ever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
