Psalm 23 is perhaps the most widely known psalm among both believers and unbelievers. Many find strength through knowing that the LORD, our Shepherd, leads us well and never leaves us. Others have highlighted this psalm for its historic truths as seen in the life of King David. While these well-understood concepts are true, there is a depth to the psalm often unexplored as it relates particularly to Jesus.

In this teaching, Matt Candler breaks down Psalm 23 verse-by-verse through a messianic lens, drawing our eyes to Jesus as the slain Lamb and calling us to imitate Him in His suffering as we trust our Father as our Shepherd.

Matt gave this teaching at Forerunner Christian Fellowship in Kansas City in August 2012.

Matt Candler - Great talk on Psalm 23

Highly recommended. Listen through as Matt draws together the strands from the universal to an intimate application, I tell you - it rewired my heart and left me in tears. This is fuel for us all as we go through the seasons of testing and desire to make God great. It reminds us again that our mission is to display the truth that its all about Jesus, its all for His name's sake. Our call - to display through our lives the worth and value of his name, his friendship with us, the magnificence of his plans. Matt's reveals how we get rewarded in that journey, that Psalm 23 is a divine road map, travelled by Jesus that we are designed to follow too. Then as an eternal testimony we can say, with authentic experience, whatever the circumstances, 'I lack nothing."
