Reflections on Psalm 23:4

“Even 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.” Psalms‬ ‭23:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I remember waking up, startled by a dream that I can no longer recall. With an unsettled heart, I tried to return to sleep but in vain. Perhaps I should meditate on a verse, I thought. Psalm 23:4 came to mind. I visualised walking on a path so dark, I knew not where I was going. Yet the darkness did not paralyse. Someone was with me. I could not see His face, but I could hear His staff tapping the soft, mossy path underfoot, as I trailed along. Our steps were slow but sure. There was great comfort knowing His Presence.

The road ahead was leading to an unknown, hinting a premature end. But I realised it is but a shadow of death, dared to terrorise, but impotent to kill. It cannot touch me; nor would He allow it.
