The Lord Is My Shepherd, I Shall Not Want

Rebecca Goings



“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”

Psalm 23

Psalm 23 was inspired by God and written by King David, who, being a shepherd himself, imagined the Lord as a Shepherd as well. We, His people, are the sheep of His pasture. This Good Shepherd makes sure His sheep are well-fed, hydrated, and rested. We can pray using this prayer when we long for peace, for grace, and for the Lord Himself to lead and guide us. By His provision, we lack no good thing. Look to Christ to be your Provider and trust in His wisdom to walk with you down the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
