The Lord is my shepherd Psalm 23 is the best loved single passage in the Old Testament. I am sure that millions of people have been comforted by its words. Often it is read at funerals but the deeper truth of Psalm 23 is the affirmation that God will provide for you in your lifetime.
Psalm 23, which begins with “The Lord is my shepherd”, is the most quoted of all the Psalms. It is so personal. There is no “we”, “us” or “they”. It is “my”, “me”, “I”, “He” and “you”. David personally experienced this Psalm and then put it in words for us,
It is a Psalm that both comforts and empowers me. There are six different ways that God empowers me.
- 1. Provision- I have all that I need. Verse 1 says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want”. Psalm 84:11 says, “No good thing will He withhold from them that love Him”. David says in Psalm 37:25 that he has never seen God fail to meet our needs.” God is worthy of our trust. If you are lacking something it is because God knows when and what is the best time for you to receive it.
