I found Ps 23:1 AMP version illuminating and so helpful for me to find my rest at night after pain medication for surgery had messed up my sleep patterns. It reads:
The Lord is my Shepherd to feed, to guide and to shield me, I shall not want.
The word shield gave me a visual of Him as my Lord and protector, shielding me from enemy fire (my busy thoughts). He is standing by my side as my helper. My part is to keep focussed on Him as He leads me through the attacks. All around me are trials and enemy fire but He puts a boundary around me that nothing can get through. It has helped me recognise the power and strength of my God.
