The Lord is my shepherd, I will not be in need. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for the sake of His name.Psalm 23:1-3 NASB
With the Lord, there’s no such thing as lack.
He’s the God of abundance, provision, peace, and even extravagance.
The kingdom of heaven holds limitless resources and wisdom for those who will ask, seek, and knock.
Conversely, the kingdom of darkness dishes out messages of scarcity and deception, drenched in fear.
Which kingdom are you living in? Who (or what) are you trusting for protection and provision?
King David, who wrote Psalm 23, looked to the Lord. A shepherd himself, David understood the great care required to protect and feed his flock — even fending off lions and bears to bring his sheep to safety.
David deeply depended on God as his rescuer and ultimate caretaker. He knew the Lord as his faithful shepherd and source of abundance.
In John 10, Jesus discloses that he is the Good Shepherd. He came to give the lost sheep life to the full.
He laid down his life and rose from the grave so you can gain immediate access to God’s kingdom and his throne of grace.
So fix your gaze on the Good Shepherd. Follow him with full faith, believing he will protect, guide, and give you everything you need (and then some).
Today, try switching off the (fake, fleeting) news and soaking in the (timeless) truth of Psalm 23. Take heart and declare (just like David) that you lack no good thing.
Psst: I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on a new opportunity for you.
