Bible Reflection 6 (Psalm 23:1)

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

Everyone has things in life that they want and hope to gain. This has been true since the dawn of human history. Humans cannot find everything they need for themselves, however. Instead, we are usually forever searching for something else or something more.

We feel as if we are always falling short of what we need or want. Thankfully, it is not all on us to find everything or create everything that we need. When it really comes down to it, God provides what we need. He is also the one who helps bring us the intangibles such as love and hope that make life worth living.

To grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear.
