Scripture Reading: Psalm 23:1

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”


Psalm 23:1 begins with a profound declaration of trust in the Lord’s provision and guidance. The metaphor of God as a shepherd carries rich imagery, portraying a relationship marked by care, protection, and guidance. In declaring, “I shall not want,” the psalmist expresses a deep confidence in the Shepherd’s ability to meet every need. This verse invites us to examine our own trust in God’s provision, challenging us to relinquish anxieties about scarcity and rest in the abundance of His care.

Moreover, Psalm 23:1 calls us to reflect on the nature of our desires. As we align our hearts with the Shepherd’s leading, our wants become aligned with His purpose. In recognizing the Lord as our Shepherd, we acknowledge His sovereign authority over our lives. In this season of Lent, let us intentionally cultivate a spirit of trust, confident that in God, we lack nothing essential for our journey.


Faithful Shepherd, we declare that you are our provider and guide. In your care, we find abundance, and in your guidance, we discover fulfillment. May our hearts resonate with the trust expressed in Psalm 23:1, recognizing that in you, we shall not want. Amen.
