Daily devotional: Our Shepherd

Scripture
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
Psalm 23:1 NIV

Observation
What a beautiful statement of rest and contentment in being under the Lord God's authority and provision. By being our shepherd, He guides us, protects us, disciplines us, provides for us, and trains us. We are not in want because He takes care of all our needs. Thus we can be content and safe with Him, even when everything around us is not safe.

Application
Meditate on this verse and the reality it means for my life.

Prayer
Lord, You are so good to me. Thank you for being my Shepherd, so that I am not in want. I love you.
