The Twenty-Third Psalm

One of the best-known verses in the Bible is the twenty-third Psalm. It has brought comfort to thousands of Christians. The Psalm was written by David who was a shepherd.

David, the shepherd-boy, pictured God as his heavenly shepherd. The Psalm begins with, “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.”

Think about that verse.

David says because the Lord is his shepherd, he does not want. This means that David’s needs were totally met in the Lord. David didn’t want for anything. He had the Lord and the Lord was all he needed.

The same can be true for us. If we know the Lord the Lord is all we need. That means we enjoy the presence of the Lord. We are able to sit quietly and meditate on the Lord. We enjoy being with other Christian friends. This doesn’t mean we don’t have relationships with non-believers.

Today, like the Psalmist, with God as our shepherd, we should have all we want.
