When Scripture Doesn’t Speak

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

“Take a well-known sentence from Scripture and read it again and again until it speaks to you.”


“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (from Psalm 23).


“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not WANT.” God will never leave me without anything I need.


“The Lord is MY shepherd; I shall not want.” God is my personal shepherd. The God who created heaven and earth is caring for and leading me.


“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” The Lord, the leader of heaven’s armies, the self-existent one, the God who raised Jesus from the dead when all the powers of evil tried to keep him in the grave — HE is my shepherd.


“The Lord IS my shepherd; I shall not want.” God is my shepherd right now. He’s my shepherd when I feel close to him. He’s my shepherd when he seems far away. He’s my shepherd when I have abundance. He’s my shepherd when I only have a little. He’s my shepherd when I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m mad, and when I’m scared. He’s my shepherd when I trust and when I fear. He’s my shepherd when I sin and when I fail. He’s my shepherd whenever, wherever, however, whichever, and always. He IS my shepherd. Praise God!


Okay, now it’s your turn: Read it again and again until it speaks to you.
