Remember who you have walking by your side, ‘following you’. You’ve got ‘company‘!
Remember that 4th image the angry King saw in the fiery furnace with the three Hebrew boys he placed in it (Daniel 3)? They had company; they did NOT burn up either.
Goodness on your left side, Mercy on your right side.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
Psalm 23 (NKJV)
