There is a vegetable protein powder that I mix with almond milk and a few other ingredients to for a delicious, nutritious power packed meal. My protein powder has 50 organic superfoods in each scoop. Two scoops equal 8grams of fiber, 21 grams of protein and one billion probiotics. I often wonder how they can get so much into so little of a serving. In case you are interested in the powder it is Orgain Organic Protein & Superfoods.

I know that you have read Psalm 23 many times and probably didn’t realize how many ingredients are this psalm so let me identify a few of them for you. When I get done I hope you are amazed at the delicious, nutritious power packed meal that this psalm serves up.

Psalm 23 (NIV) — A psalm of David. 1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Lord = Remember that Jesus said that when we pray to pray Our Father. Our Father who is the Master(Lord) of and the Expert in everything. There is nothing that our Dad can’t do except of course > sin.

My Shepherd speaks of a very close caring relationship. I lack nothing speaks of the Father’s constant provision for us. He makes me lie down tells of the supernatural rest that he gives to my soul. Green pastures means that it is also rest for my body; better then a memory foam mattress!

He leads me beside quiet waters means that He is able to quiet me on the inside when all is turmoil on the outside. He refreshes my soul is another way of saying that He brings me healing. He guides me along right paths is another way of saying that he know how this life is to be lived and He will inform me. For His names sake gives me purpose like doing all for the glory of God.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley means that there will be times of testing. I will fear no evil for you are with me lets me know of God’s closeness and His faithfulness. Your rod and staff the comfort me = discipline. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies give me hope in the bleakest of times. You anoint my head with oil lets me know that I am set apart for Father.

My cup overflows speaks of abundance. Surely goodness and follow me all the days of my life lets me know that Father isn’t lagging behind but is pursuing me with blessings. I will dwell in the house of the Lord =security. Forever = eternity.

What a power packed, nutritious, delicious meal, right! Take this a couple times a day and watch your spiritual life take on new shape. 😉
