“Favorite Verses”

Rachel Belles, our organist, writes:

One of my favorite verses is:        Psalm 23:1 “The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”

“The” – not “a” but “the” – HE’s the only one.

“LORD” – The powerful, holy, Almighty GOD

“is” – at the present – right now

“my” – it’s personal – HE’s mine

“Shepherd” – HE’s my guide, my protector, my provider

“I shall not want” – I lack nothing

The story is told of a little girl who had memorized Psalm 23 and was to recite it in a program at church.  She got up on the platform and when she saw all those people, she got stage-fright.  She said, “The LORD’s my Shepherd, and that’s all I want” and went running off the platform.

Yes, the LORD is my Shepherd and that’s all I want.  I have everything that I need in Him.  And yes, HE can be your Shepherd today!
