I Shall Not Want

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

I do not have anything to worry about. I shall not want. He will take care of me. I do worry though.

Why can I not let go of worries I can’t control? Well, to be honest, I’m okay with that. My problem is that I don’t let them go in faith in God. I have always had things taken care of, so I just assume they will be fine, not because I know God will take care of it, but because it always has.

In this psalm, it keeps on saying He provides, He leads, He protects, not my parents, not my job, not money, not my family, not anything but God. I am learning, but I do get caught in that little trap because of the lack of urgency. I feel okay.

So I am working on leaning on God, my Father.
