The Lord is my Shepherd


The Lord is my ShepherdIn these changing times, many people are living from pay check to pay check.   And if the truth were known, at some point or another most of us have been   concerned about money. We imagine that men like Bill Gates do not have this   problem because he always has enough to cover the checks he writes.

We believe he has more than enough. On the other hand,   some people fall just short of enough. Many possess just enough, and others   will never have all they want or think they need. God, however, does not want   us to look at our earthly possessions and think, “Well, I don’t have enough   to make it, and I’m mad because that guy over there has much more.” Wealth is   never the issue with God. You can be the richest person in the world, but if   you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you are eternally poor—a pauper   in God’s sight.

True wealth comes when we learn to seek God for every need we have and   we live within the framework that He has given us. When we do this, we begin   to trust and rely only on Him. It also places us in a position for great   blessing because He will never leave us feeling hopeless or abandoned.   Instead, we gain a growing sense of His intimate care and love for us.
If you could chose earthly wealth and riches or God’s eternal love, which one   would you choose? Your answer reveals a lot about how much you value and   treasure the Lord.

In Psalm 23, David presents some wonderful news for each one of us. He   wants us to know that God has more than enough to provide for every need we   have. He owns everything and all that is His can be ours.

You may feel as though you do not have enough to make it through   another month or that your life is stamped “insufficient funds.” Here’s the   good news: God has more than enough. When you pray and express your needs, He   promises to meet those needs every time in amazing ways.

If the Lord is your shepherd, He will meet all of your needs every   time. Be patient. Seek His face in prayer and watch for His coming.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

May God Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and   defend us from all their enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
