Today’s Promise

The Lord is My Shepherd

Psalm 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

Psalm 23

We often think of psalm 23 as a psalm for funerals and memorials. However, this psalm is really a psalm for living. It is all about living under the care of the great, Good Shepherd. This psalm describes what it’s like to have God watch over and care for you.

Psalm 23 begins with a five-word promise, and that’s our focus today. “The Lord is my shepherd.”

The Lord

The God you serve is the great lord and creator of the universe. There is no one like Him. He is the Lord God Almighty. He is the King of kings. He is the beginning and the end. He holds creation together by His word. He is above and beyond your imagination. No other god can compare to His beauty, glory, and strength. He is lord above all principalities and powers.


When God appeared to Moses in the burning bush, He said He was the great “I Am.” God is. He is all you need now and forever. He is not the great “I Was.” His power and glory are as mighty today as they were when He spoke the universe into being.

My Shepherd

This great creator God is your shepherd. He personally cares and watches over you. The shepherd knows all his sheep by name and personally attends to their needs. 

Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd. As the Good Shepherd, right now, He is caring for you. He knows where you are, what you worry about, and your deepest needs. Because Jesus is your Good Shepherd, you never have to fear because He is watching over you. He provides for your every need and leads you to places of rest. 

When the Lord is your shepherd,

– You know you are cared for. He will notice and help when you are weak, sick, or in need.

– He knows you by name.

– You know there will never be a need He won’t meet.

– You know He loved you enough to lay down His life for you.

– You know He will guide you in the way you should go.

Let’s look at that promise one more time.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. – Psalm 23:1

Confess this with me.

  • The Lord of all creation is my shepherd.
  • He is my protection, provision, and guide.
  • He is watching over every area of my life.
  • He knows my name, and I hear His voice.

In Jesus Name,

Let this promise follow you throughout your day. “The Lord is Your shepherd.”

    Prayers for my son JaDarrell to come to the Lord, and that the Lord will open his eyes to God’s truth. At 37 years of age he just can’t seem to become a man. Pray for him to be responsible, accountable and pay his debts and save some money to move into his own apartment and be a responsible adult. Pray for his anger and temper and communication skills. In Jesus Christ mighty name I ask.
