The Lord is my Shepherd

Jesus can provide a home and transportation. We know He can provide you with a job. We know He can provide you with food. What else do you need? What are your needs today? Jesus meets them all


The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible]. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.


[Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment]. [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

PSALM 92:12-15 AMP


Some people are so worried about dying early, but God’s Word says the uncompromisingly righteous will be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful. The King James Version says that they shall be fat and flourishing. The Amplified Bible says, they Shall be full of sap. Are you full of sap? Are you full of spiritual vitality? Are you rich in trust, love, and contentment? We are living memorials! Our lives show the world that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises. He is our rock, there’s no unrighteousness in Him, and our lives exhibit this truth to a lost and dying world.


Psalm 23:1 AMP says, The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. To feed, guide, and shield me is everything I need. I shall not lack! I wake up in the morning with an air of expectancy; looking for the favor of God, looking for the blessing of God.


Pastor asks the question, have you come to that place where you just trust the Lord? Trust Him! You’ve got nothing to lose, so trust Him. He’s there to help you. He’s there to make the way for you. He’s your Provider. He loves you. He’ll walk into your house and multiply food. He knows how to pay the bills, and He knows how to pay tax money. He knows about transportation needs, and He knows about accommodation needs. And most of all, He can make a way where there is no way!


And you shall return and obey the voice of the Lord and do all His commandments which I command you today. And the Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, of your cattle, of your land, for good,” for the Lord will again delight in prospering you, as He took delight in your fathers.



Your heavenly Father will make you abundantly prosperous, for He delights in prospering you because you obey His commandments. God loves to bless His obedient children. Are you His child? Do you submit to His will and His Word? Then God will bless you and enjoy every moment of it. You don’t have to run after blessing. Run after Jesus and blessing and provision will run after you!
