Psalms 23: My Shepherd-3
Psalms 23:1 “The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.”
The sheep don’t even worry while travelling, knowing full well that the driver who is the shepherd will get them safely to the desired destination.
Barzillai did all this for David and painted the picture of a great shepherd for him. David being a shepherd himself, reasoned that if a man can do this for him, how much more GOD!
David said The Lord is MY Shepherd. Can you boldly say it and mean it?
I read a caption that says, “It doesn’t matter the economy of the jungle, the lion will never eat grass!” The lion will never eat grass because the Shepherd will make sure of that.
Psalms 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.” (NLT)
David said, as long as the Lord remains his shepherd, he has all that he needs. I love to paraphrase it like this, “The Lord is my Shepherd and that will be enough!”
I have no worry on earth because I’ve transferred that responsibility to my shepherd. Once you have him you have all you need.
I once read the story of a rich man that died and left all that he had to his old and faithful servant. This rich man had only one son and in his will he told the son to pick just one thing before the servant takes all.
The young man thought for several days and made consultations before finally choosing his “one thing”. Your guess is as good as mine, he chose the servant! By choosing the servant all that the servant has automatically become his.
I love the way Joseph Thayer puts it in the Greek-English Lexicon as quoted in the Amplified Bible:
Matthew 6:33 “But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.”
One thing is needful, choose the SHEPHERD and all HE has becomes yours! HE owns everything.
