"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭23:1‬

The Lord Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd.”  He said, “My sheep hear my voice and they follow me.”  He applies the 23rd Psalm to Himself.

If the Lord Jesus is your shepherd, you will lack nothing. You will not be in want, because He has promised to take care of your needs. But don’t some Christians live in poverty?

Yes, some Christians live in poorer economic conditions than others. Not all Christians are wealthy. Some don’t know from where their next meal will come or how they will pay the rent. I’ve been there, too. But God does not abandon His children, ever. He will provide for you, and you can trust Him.

Money isn’t everything, and it isn’t the only thing we need. God sometimes reduces our material wealth in order to teach us to trust Him alone and look to Him to supply what we need. Sometimes He reduces our health for the same reason. Sometimes He allows us to go through terribly hard emotional difficulty for the same reason. There is always a reason and a purpose, and we can trust Him.

All the while, we have this promise and we can stand on it, build our lives on it, and believe His Word: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” God keeps His promises.

Lord Jesus, You are my Good Shepherd, and I am a lamb of your Flock. I am yours. I know I can trust You and I will lack nothing I need as I follow You. I trust You to supply what I need today. Keep me close. Amen.
