All that I Need

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. Psalms 23:1


This verse is familiar with a powerful message for His children.  It is worthy of our meditation and our full comprehension of His role as the Good Shepherd.  He provides for all of our spiritual and natural needs. Food, shelter, safety, peace, deliverance, comfort, healing and joy are all available from the Savior.  He is my Shepherd; I have all that I need. My provisions are met.  What is required for me to achieve my purpose is available to me.  This is a state of abundance and a promise that we should hide in our heart and inhabit our thinking.   Where I am right now with what I have right now is enough.  The Shepherd, our Savior, is leading. His grace for me is sufficient.  He is preparing me at each juncture for the next step ahead.  The Shepherd provides for all of my needs.  I lack nothing, as I follow Him.   And I am thankful.


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalms 23

Follow the Leader

The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. Psalms 23:1 NLT


I am so thankful for our Leader, our Shepherd, Jesus Christ. He is our Savior and our guide for every aspect of our lives. A Shepherd is a gentle and effective Director for those who hear His voice and will follow His command. We are thankful for His love for us that guides us into our purpose in Him. His guiding Holy Spirit is for all of His followers. His guidebook is His Word that provides instruction and wisdom for our daily living. We thank God for each direction given in love. We are so thankful for His grace that has given us this day to continue on the journey. We are walking in purpose. We are following our Leader who is leading us into a blessed life that He has created for us. And we are thankful.

The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalms 23 NLT
