I Lack Nothing - Psalm 23




BIG IDEA:
FEAR SAYS: “WHAT IF” ….. FAITH SAYS: “EVEN IF”
Psalm 23   (NIV)
A psalm of David.
  The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.   

The role of THE shepherd:  John 10:1-21  
“The Good Shepherd and His Sheep” 

1) Knows your Life
(John 10:14) - - An Intimate “Know”
(John 10:3) - - Knows you by name. 

2) Protects your Life 
(John 10:7-10)

3) Provides for your Life  - -   (salvation/hope/promise)    THIS IS WHY YOU “LACK NOTHING” 
(John 10:11 & 15-17)

4) Brings Clarity To Your Life 
(John10:4-6)

6) To show the authority in your Life 
John 10:18 & 21

5) Brings a sense of Belonging to your Life.   YOU BELONG. 
v. 3 “His own Sheep”
v. 4a “All His Own”
v. 4b “HIS sheep”
v. 14 “I know MY sheep” 

APPLICATION:
John 21:15-17

The shepherd sees the needs of the sheep   
(This is what it means to FEED my sheep… Look for the NEED.) 


He makes me lie down in green pastures,         
Psalm 127:2       (Gives us good rest) 

he leads me beside quiet waters,                       
Ephesians 2:14     (Gives us our Peace)

he refreshes my soul.                                   
Jeremiah 31:25     (Gives us a full cup)

He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.   Isaiah 30:21  (Gives us right directions)

Application:
For HIS Name Sake!!    - - Psalm 106:8 - - 


Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

BIG IDEA - - - - 
FEAR SAYS: “WHAT IF” ….. FAITH SAYS: “EVEN IF”
The Rod = Represents Gods Authority!     (Matthew 28:18)
The Staff = Represents Gods Mighty Ability to PULL you out of despair and into his Marvelous Light    (Psalm 40:2)

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Fun Bible Trivia = The shepherd in the field anointed the head of the sheep with oil and spice to protect it from harmful insects.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22
21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.


Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

2 Promises to claim 

1) Goodness and Love will always be your banner 

2) Your eternity is sealed. 

Application:
When you have PERSPECTIVE, the things of this world grow strangely dim. 

Where do you need to step from WHAT IF, into EVEN IF?
