Psalm 23 celebrates the great themes of provision (vs. 1-3) and protection (vs. 4), which appear gloriously united in vs. 5, where David experiences both when he partakes in God’s battle feast. Surrounded by enemies, David is refreshed and nourished by God, and he understands that this particular meal is a promise – one day, the temporary table on the field of battle will give way to permanent rest in God’s house, where the feasting has overcome the enemies . As you leave the world behind this morning, and enter into God’s house and sit down to eat at His table, tune your praise to the joyful key of the promise of Psalm 23, because this promise is for you.
