This. Right. Here.
“Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1
After much consideration, meditation and prayer, I’ve determined this right here is how we will survive what lies ahead. I must allow God to be my guide. I must trust Him – totally trust Him – to be my Savior, my Lord, and my King. Though everything else around me crumbles and despite anyone else around me jumping ship, I will rely on the Lord.
Each of us have our fair share of issues. None of us go untouched by the world’s sin. None of us are sinless. If we say we do not sin (that we are perfect), we lie. The bible says so. All have gone astray. All sin. Anyone who claims to be without sin is a liar. It’s in there. Find it.
But, because the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He will supply all my needs. He will direct my path. He will go with me. I will follow Him as my Leader and my Life Guide.
When things seem overwhelming, when we feel abandoned, when we are afraid, when we are misunderstood – the Lord is our Shepherd. We can follow Him, or we can run ahead making more messes. It’s up to us.
I choose Him.
