I Shall Not Be In Want

Most of the time when I say grace before a meal I say with conviction, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want!"  Not because its a short verse, which lets me feed my face sooner than saying a prayer, but because I really mean it.

"I shall not be in want."  Now, that reminds me that I desire certain things:  new draperies, new carpeting, new furniture.  These are luxuries not necessities, because I already have these things.  I just want different ones.  Know what I mean?  God promises to provide all our needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.  I know he will do that.  And he delights in often giving us what we want as well.

When I say, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want, "it's more than just something to recite before eating.  It's an affirmation that the Good Shepherd is watching over all the affairs of my life and is making sure I'm taken care of.
