Faith Building Verse-Psalm 23:1

October 6th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Psalm 23:1.

David, a man after God’s own heart made this statement about his relationship with God. “The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.”

For David, knowing God was the passion of his heart and the fulfillment of his life.

Having a relationship with God does not mean we will gain more of the things that we want in this world, but we will have the grace that is sufficient for our needs. Our greatest need is forgiveness, and when Jesus went to the cross, He was extending His mercy to sinners who desperately need Him.

Jesus said in John 10:14, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me-just as the Father knows me and I know the Father-and I lay down my life for the sheep.” He also said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”

This Faith-Building Verse inspires us to find fulfillment in knowing Jesus as our Good Shepherd in the Year of Relationship.
