In the third stanza of Psalm 23, David shares with us that this shepherd loves us so much he will correct us when we make the wrong decisions and he will lead us to make the right decisions. If you are on the wrong road because of a wrong decision you’ve made, there is hope for you. If you are at a crossroads and you don’t know which way to go, there is help for you. In the third stanza, we find that there is healing for our past, help for our present, and hope for our future. David writes, “He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his namesake” (Psalm 23:3). We are all God’s restoration projects at times in our lives. This beautiful sentence tells us how God carries out that project perfectly.
