I shall not want

In Uncategorized on July 31, 2009 at 8:22 am

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

I was reading a book this morning that really made this verse stand out to me. In my life I want to be the person God created me to be. I want to live up to my calling to imitate and point others to Christ. I am desperate sometimes to not be the imperfect person that I see every morning in the mirror; or hear speaking in conversation with others; or see living in a way that seeks personal glory.

The thing is this morning I was reminded to hope. I was reminded that our salvation is more than simply being directed into the good line once we die. My salvation is a promise that God will transform me and that God can transform the entire world. It is a promise that I can live life where I have an attitude that wants for nothing…For the Lord is my shepherd.

May the Lord, our Shepherd, be with you today.
