Psalms 23, and The God Who Supplies All Needs

Consider “All” the wonderful names of God in His character as “Jehovah”. He is the almighty, the all powerful, and the all knowing covenant keeping God. All the names you will see are for each of us, fulfilled in us, only by Jesus Christ if you believe. The titles of the Lord Jehovah are ever present in Psalms 23. When we focus on God Himself, and His character, you will come to see that He is forever present.
