The Shepherd’s Care for His Sheep

The Twenty-third Psalm is a beacon of hope for this earthly journey. Its encouragement rejoices the heart, and its promises give strength for each day.

WANT – “The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want.”

I shall not want rest. “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.”

I shall not want drink. “He leadeth me beside the still waters.”

I shall not want forgiveness. “He restoreth my soul.”

I shall not want guidance. “He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.”

I shall not want companionship. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me.”

I shall not want comfort. “Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.”

I shall not want food. “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.”

I shall not want joy. “Thou anointest my head with oil.”

I shall not want anything. “My cup runneth over.”

I shall not want anything in this life. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.”

I shall not want anything in eternity. “And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.” — Selected

“My Lord and I walk through the meadows green.”
