The 23rd Psalm is one that is quoted often, and many people over the centuries have appreciated David’s words. One line, in particular, struck me as I meditated over David’s words: I shall not want. From the perspective of a sheep, a shepherd provides everything that it could ever need: food, water, shelter. From a human perspective, marketers tell us every single day that we shall want. In fact, the job of a marketer is to make you want something that you didn’t even know existed. The problem is that none of us has ever been satisfied when we attained those things. There’s always something more – something newer or better that captures our attention. For the person who makes the Lord his Shepherd, though, I believe it’s possible to reach the place of “I shall not want.” When you appreciate all that the Lord has done for you and how He lovingly cares and provides for you, there’s a sense of satisfaction and realization that all that He gives is enough. So there’s a new prayer that I’m going to begin praying, and I invite you to join me. Lord, help me to be satisfied with all that You provide. You are my Shepherd, and because of that, I know that You will give me all that I need. Let me find my satisfaction and my joy in life solely in You.
