We have come to a part in Psalm 23 where the sheep has been led on the right paths and had gone through the valleys. They are now reaching the tablelands - a wild area that has predators that might prey on the sheep.
However, as Pastor Robert Morgan reminds us, the shepherd is there to protect the sheep.
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over." - Psalm 23:5
We don't need to fear our foes when we are following the Shepherd. He will guide us, protect us and provide us with all that we need.
