“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.Psalm 23:1
David begins his poetic verse that makes up Psalm 23 with a profound statement that conveys his level of faith, knowing with full confidence that God will provide for all of his needs. So much so that he has no desires and is fully content with all that God has given and will give him. The commercialism of modern-day bombards our minds with suggestive selling tactics continually. The intent is to convince us that we “want” this item or that thing to a point where we make a purchase.
Like David, we too must be content with the Lord’s provisions that see to our daily needs. That is not to say God does not want us to desire certain things that we see, but that we are not to be consumed by them that we fail to see and acknowledge that He is our provider, to a point where they take His place in our lives.
Therefore, in the day ahead, meditate on the fact that the Lord is your shepherd. Be encouraged to recognize and give thanks for His provisions in your life, which He so freely gives without reservation.

“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before. “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too. Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air. Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
