“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1
This psalm provides comfort, peace and strength in knowing that God’s goodness and our dependence upon him satisfies our wants and needs. God wants us to be independently dependent upon Him and to need Him alone. If anyone or anything else is shepherding us, we will never be satisfied, but if the Lord is our shepherd we shall not want.
Almighty Father, you are my shepherd. Bestow upon me peace, confidence and strengthened faith in your goodness and love. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
