"The Lord is my shepherd, therefore I lack nothing"
Psalm 23 is a song of assurance. King David, who wrote this psalm, used to be a shepherd, and he draws on his experiences to express the care that the Lord shows for his people. And David finds his security in knowing that the Lord is his shepherd. There were plenty of other things in which David might have been tempted to invest his security: his status as king, his palace, his army, the royal treasury, but David knows that true security is only found in one place. Followers of Jesus Christ know him to be the good shepherd who laid down his life for the sheep (John 10), and we therefore put our trust in him alone.
