With the Lord, there’s no such thing as lack. He’s the God of abundance, provision, peace, and extravagance.
The kingdom of heaven holds limitless resources and wisdom for those who will ask, seek, and knock.
On the other hand, the kingdom of this world 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, author of 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 unhindered access to God’s kingdom and his throne of glory and 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 (fleeting) news and soaking in the (eternal) truth of Psalm 23. Take heart and declare (just like David) thank you lack no good thing.
Psst … You’re invited: Psalm 23 in 2023
