I Shall Lack Nothing

When I was little in Sunday School, and up until a few years ago…

I had always thought Psalm 23 meant – the shepherd would be rejected. That I wouldn’t want him.

It wasn’t until I saw a translation a few years ago saying “ I shall lack nothing “ that I realized what it truly meant. Its so very interesting how a slightly different perspective can interpret words so differently – but – really it just had two meanings for me.

One when I wasn’t a believer, and the latter once I truly knew Jesus.

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
for the sake of His name.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
