The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
...no good thing will he withhold from them
that walk uprightly.
I have been struggling lately to rest in the promises of God and in His goodness. God has promised to meet my needs and if I am walking in His will to give me all good things. Why then do I question His plans and ways in my life? Why should I battle discontent?
O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory,
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy loving kindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
When I remember thee upon my bed,
and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
My soul followeth hard after thee:
thy right hand upholdeth me.
