“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 23:1

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The Lord is my shepherd;

there is nothing I shall want.

.

– Psalm 23:1 (TGP)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

The Lord is my shepherd;

there is nothing I shall want.

We have heard this verse time and time again.

If there is one verse from the Bible that we all know by heart,

this is the one!

.

We may have heard or uttered this verse several times,

but do we realise and appreciate the significance of the statement?

.

The Lord is my shepherd;

there is nothing I shall want.

.

“The Lord…”

God my Heavenly Father and Creator, Jesus Christ my Saviour, the Holy Spirit, my Counsellor,

the Great Three-in-One

– He is “the” Lord,

my only Lord and Master.

.

“…is…”

I believe, therefore to me He is,

and because I have faith, I know He truly is.

He is the Great I AM.

.

“…my…”

He is my Lord, no doubt about it,

and so I humbly but steadfastly state and proclaim that the Lord is mine.

He belongs to me

and I belong to Him.

.

“…shepherd…”

My Lord leads me

…and I follow.

He gives me protection, comfort, security, mercy and hope.

He loves me

and I seek to love Him back.

.

“…there is nothing I shall want.”

With the Lord as my shepherd,

then there can be nothing, absolutely nothing else that I shall want.

He is all I need!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, You are my Shepherd,

and there is nothing I shall want.
