Our verse of the week comes from Psalm 119: 33-35
“Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight” (NIV).

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study. This is a place where we can come together and share our journey towards Scriptural truths and spiritual maturity. We pray this will be a safe, respectful, resourceful place to come and discuss God’s Word…to discover What it says…What it means…and What it means to you!
Kendra suggests you use the following process when studying Scripture. We have included an example of this process from John 1:1.
Step 1: Pray
Step 2: Read God’s Word (look at the passage)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Step 3: What Does God’s Word Say? (list the facts)
1 In the beginning the Word was with God and was God.
Step 4: What Does God’s Word Mean? (learn the lessons)
1 God‘s Word is not just ancient philosophy, it is eternal Truth.
Step 5: What Does God’s Word Mean to Me? (listen to his voice…the application)
1 How do I view the Bible?
Kendra Graham NOTES from PSALM 23:1-2
WHAT DOES IT SAY? FACTS
1. The LORD is my shepherd
2. He makes me lay in green pastures, He leads beside quiet waters.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? THE LESSONS
1. We are all led by someone or something, the LORD is a shepherd
2. The LORD leads us to places of provision and REST.
2b. The LORD leads each lamb from the front, He doesn’t drive them from behind.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME? APPLICATION
1. Who or what is the driving force behind what I do or don’t do?
2. Do I believe God has my best interests at heart or do I think He is kind of a “Pied Piper” shepherd just waiting to lead me right off a cliff? Do I believe God will provide for me?
2b. Am I willing to be lead by the LORD or do I just prefer to pick the places and beg Him to bless them?
