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!

The Lord Is My Shepherd. I Shall Not Want.

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT.

God’s divine power
has already given unto us all things that pertain to life and godliness. Note
that this scripture (2 Peter 1:2-3) is in the present perfect tense; therefore
it’s not a promise. This means that God has already done it; His divine power
has already given us all things that we need to live the good and prosperous
life. Praise God, all my needs are met and I have no reason to lack anything in
life! No wonder the Psalmist said, “The
Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want”
(Psalm 23:1).

You must copy or imitate his mentality. You shouldn’t lack
for the Lord is now your Shepherd. He makes you lie down in green pastures, He
leads you beside the still waters, and He restores your soul (Psalm 23:3).

Refuse to lack anything. Reject the lack mentality. How do
you do this? It is by being supply – conscious! Don’t be afraid of your supply
drying up. Rather, look to your ever-loving Shepherd who supplies your every
need according to His riches in glory. Two men were asked the level of fuel in
the tank. One answered, “It is half-empty”. The other looked and happily
declared, “It is half-full”. Definitely, the first man was lack-conscious while
the second was supply-conscious. Learn to be supply – conscious.

Know this, you’re a child of God, therefore your life is in
the Shepherd’s hands. This is why you can say like the Psalmist, “The Lord is
my Shepherd, I shall not want for money, shelter  or food; I shall not want for any good thing
in this life.” Glory to God! Amen!

CONFESSION

Young lions may go
hungry or even starve, but I trust the Lord, therefore I will never lack
anything good. The Lord supplies all my needs according to His abundant riches
in glory by Christ Jesus, Amen!
