    Today's Text and Thought of Encouragement:

    "Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed…by and through His Spirit for the Holy Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God, the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man's scrutiny…Now we have not received the spirit that belongs to the world, but the Holy Spirit who is from God, given us that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts of divine favor…and blessing so freely and lavishly bestowed on us by God."

    1 Corinthians 2: 10, 12

    Amplified Bible

    "Dwell deep, my soul! Forbid thou shouldst stay shallow!

    Dwell deep in thought, in purpose, wish, and will!

    Dwell deep in God, - let His own presence hallow;

    Thy inner being let His presence fill."

    J. Danson Smith

    "Thou Remainest"

    Today's Study Text:

    1. "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want."

    Psalm 23: 1


    2. "God, my Shepherd! I don't need a thing."

    Psalm 23: 1

    The Message Bible

    3. "The Lord is my Shepherd to feed, guide, and shield me. I shall not lack."

    Psalm 23: 1

    Amplified Bible

    4. "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want."

    Psalm 23: 1



    Psalm 23 – Part 6

    "What More Do I Need!"

    "'I shall not want.' The God who is named in Psalm 23 is trustworthy – with our lives, with our choices, with our fears and losses. Living out of a fundamental attitude of trust is counterintuitive, even countercultural, in modern Western cultures. To say with the psalmist, 'I shall not want,' directly challenges all of the advertising that is designed to create a felt need that a particular product can satisfy. It is not easy for us to resist all of the voices that seek to heighten our sense of dissatisfaction with the gifts we have from God: life itself, community/communion with persons and with all creation, the capacity to feed and shelter and cherish each being…'I shall not want' is a statement of fact, based on trust, that is a reality check against our feelings of neediness."

    Feasting of the Word

    Year C, Volume 2

    If I made a list of my "wants," what would be on that list?

    When Psalm 23: 1 states, "I shall not want," what do I think this phrase means?

    "My God will liberally supply, fill the full, your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

    Philippians 4: 19

    Amplified Bible

    "Oh, bind this bright assurance to your heart; and whatever perils may menace and threaten you, whatever wants may assail, go forward, stepping out into the dark, encouraging your heart by this sweet refrain: "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want."

    F. B. Meyer
