Psalm 23:1- King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Most people who believe in God love to quote this scripture. It’s often said to be a comforting scripture. I must agree it is a favorite of mine as well.
When I teach Bible Study which I have renamed CROSSTraining at my local church I try to take a fresh approach to tackling the scriptures.
The Lord is my shepard; I shall not want
Could we say IF you follow God you can have everything you WANT?
The NIV says: The Lord is my Shepard; I lack nothing
So why are we seemingly in LACK?
Why are we constantly asking God for something, anything, everything.
Have we forgotten the first part of the scripture.
WE HAVE TO FOLLOW the shepard!
Then we can confidently declare the 2nd part of the scripture.
I can have what I want!
