Our Shepherd Provides

In just about every funeral I conduct the family asks me to read the 23rd Psalm.  I suppose I could say it is a funeral staple.  But I don’t think it was ever intended to be.  These verses shouldn’t be stored away and brought out at the graveside of a loved one … only.  This is a Psalm for the living!  These are verses describing the love relationship between the Shepherd (Jesus) and His sheep (us).  And verse 1 tells us that God will provide for us.
Psalm 23: 1

“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want …”
Please don’t confuse wants with needs.  God never promises to give us all we want, but to supply all we need.  And there is a big difference.  Trust Him today for your needs and ask Him to help you be content with what He allows you to have.
