So what’s new? It may be difficult to think of a time where you had all your needs met. Often, there is financial, health, emotional, or social needs. You may not be needy in one area, but in another area, you’ll have needs. But the psalmist David said, “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).
Maybe the idea is: “WHEN” the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. Then HE leads me beside still waters. HE restores your soul. HE leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Try reading the entire Psalm 23 by putting emphasis on the pronouns for God.
These days I’m asking myself this question: “is HE” leading me? Or am I moving along using the best, greatest, and latest ideas and asking for God’s blessings? Then when I am in “want,” I complain. I get frustrated with the incongruency of my life and the promises of God.
Maybe it’s time to follow the leading of our Shepherd. Allow Him to take you through paths He wants for us. Maybe then we can say: “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.”
