Psalm 23:1-3 NIV
These verses are so well known. Most of the time they are used in times of distress and even anguish, like a funeral. That being said, I would argue that these verses fit many other circumstances. The section of these verses that I like the most and the one that can be used in multiple circumstances is “. . . I lack nothing.”
Often we feel like we lack a lot, don’t we? Sometimes we just don’t feel like we have enough: material stuff, emotional energy, physical energy, etc. We feel depleted. Here’s the truth: even when we feel like this, we do lack nothing. God provides what we need or adjusts the situation so that we have enough. This promise demands something, though. It demands the full faith in God; that he is going to give us what we need. When we don’t have faith, we actually are empty and depleted. When we have faith, God lifts us up and provides what we need. To be filled we need to believe in the “filler.”
Some of us feel depleted today. Some of us feel like our tank is on empty. What the solution - it’s in your power! Believe in the one that believes in you.
