This is a message spoken by Rev. Mike Whitford at National Community Church in Washington, DC at their Ballston campus. It is the 2nd part in a 9 part Psalms series. Psalm 23 is the focus passage and has 3 major components: 1) God's Provision/Blessing in GOOD times in the green fields & beside quiet waters 2) The "BAD" times we face with Problems/Sufferings in the "valley of death" 3) The BEST times we face and look forward to in the culmination of the journey and ultimately spending eternity with the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We take a close look at the Shepherd theme of Psalm 23 as it pertains to the heart and character of God toward His people.
