The Lord Is My Shepherd. I Shall Not Want.

God’s divine power
has already given unto us all things that pertain to life and godliness. Note
that this scripture (2 Peter 1:2-3) is in the present perfect tense; therefore
it’s not a promise. This means that God has already done it; His divine power
has already given us all things that we need to live the good and prosperous
life. Praise God, all my needs are met and I have no reason to lack anything in
life! No wonder the Psalmist said, “The
Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want”
(Psalm 23:1).

You must copy or imitate his mentality. You shouldn’t lack
for the Lord is now your Shepherd. He makes you lie down in green pastures, He
leads you beside the still waters, and He restores your soul (Psalm 23:3).

Refuse to lack anything. Reject the lack mentality. How do
you do this? It is by being supply – conscious! Don’t be afraid of your supply
drying up. Rather, look to your ever-loving Shepherd who supplies your every
need according to His riches in glory. Two men were asked the level of fuel in
the tank. One answered, “It is half-empty”. The other looked and happily
declared, “It is half-full”. Definitely, the first man was lack-conscious while
the second was supply-conscious. Learn to be supply – conscious.

Know this, you’re a child of God, therefore your life is in
the Shepherd’s hands. This is why you can say like the Psalmist, “The Lord is
my Shepherd, I shall not want for money, shelter  or food; I shall not want for any good thing
in this life.” Glory to God! Amen!


Young lions may go
hungry or even starve, but I trust the Lord, therefore I will never lack
anything good. The Lord supplies all my needs according to His abundant riches
in glory by Christ Jesus, Amen!
