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

Do we believe this when we repeat it? Or have we heard it so often, it tends to lose its force? Does it mean we will never want or suffer because we are his sheep? Not so, but because we are his sheep, there is reason to be positive in our prayer and expectations, and Dr. Snyder explains why.

“One thing we can be sure of is this: Even if God allows us to appear lost for a season (or short of food or housing for a time, or alone and without friends), it’s not even a remote possibility to be outside the realm of his loving care and guidance. In the end, we can’t really ever lose.”

TODAY’S PRAYER: Ask God to help you let go of your shock at the fact that you really have this need. Pray that he’ll put in your heart the song of faith in the midst of it.
