The Prophets Decree Psalm 23 for 2023

Multiple prophets have said 2023 is the year of Psalm 23. I enjoy listening to the prophets, but I also like sleuthing out what God is saying about what the prophets are saying. Therefore, I have been looking at Psalm 23 today and what I learned from the Holy Spirit is that Psalm 23 is a psalm that moves us. Now if you don’t want to be moved this year, Psalm 23 will be a hard Psalm to embrace as the word of the Lord for the year. Since the prophets are saying 2023 is the year of Psalm 23, I wonder if God is announcing a move the church, the body of Christ is about to make. Here is what I saw in Psalm 23.

The first order of business for a Psalm 23 year is a surrendering of your will to lead your own life. Right there we are going to lose a lot of people. But listen to what Psalm 23 says, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.” It is very clear from go who is in charge in Psalm 23 and it is not me. The LORD is the one who leads, not me, not us, no matter our title. If 2023 is a Psalm 23 year, we need to see if we can pass the LORD is our leader test. And He is not leading us for our name’s sake, He is leading us for His name’s sake, so 2023 is going to be a year not about me, but about the LORD.

Secondly we see where He is leading us as the body of Christ, right into the valley and we are to not be afraid of any evil we see or hear about in the valley. Here is what we will find in the valley this year…1) The rod of God; 2) The staff of God; 3) The table of God; 4) The oil of God. These are the valley tools God will use to lead us through the valley this year. Watch for these to manifest in a major way this year.

Finally, we are being told where we are being led to and what will be following us. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.” The Lord who is our Shepherd is taking charge this year of His body and leading us into a valley and then goodness and mercy are going to follow us right into the House of the LORD, where we will dwell forever. We are being led into the House of God to dwell there. The House of God is the presence of God, the power of God, the people of God. It is a place of corporate worship, governmental rule of nations and demonstration of the kingdom. What a year this is going to be as the body of Christ submits to being led by the LORD this year.
