I discovered throughout my life experiences the book of Psalms–how it contains words that are the foundation for a close relationship with God. Many key words relevant for specific circumstances during unique times were a hallmark or milestone along my journey. Psalm 23, for example, was very real during a time in Bogota, Colombia (1976); Psalm 40 at Fort Bragg, NC (1980); Psalm 91 during Desert Storm (1991)…just to name three out of many.
Not only does the book of Psalms provide personal comfort and strength, especially in the middle of a war zone, it accurately predicts the Messiah’s birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection. Discover Psalms today. When the words from Psalm 23:5 says, “He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies,” I mentally quoted this passage on several occasions, in Berlin, Riyadh, Bogota, Balad, and many others. In every situation, the rest of the passage was fulfilled: “He anoints my head with oil; my cup runs over.”
