"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want" (Psalm 23:1).

I really love this bible quote. What it means to me is that no matter what happens or what you receive in your lifetime, the LORD our God will be by our side; he will guide us as a lighthouse during the rough waves life can bring. We shall only want Him. And for this gift, and the gift of life that he has given, nothing else in this world can fill us more than God's grace.

We shall live by the word of God, and not by our own wants and needs. I practice this bible quote by trying to live the way God intended me to, but sometimes it's hard because you want things in life that may or may not be good and this can be distracting to what our purpose is. If we live by God only, and not for ourselves, God's will for us will be shown as a path for us to follow. We are all a part of God's plan and even when we feel unwanted, God has a special purpose for us. We just have to turn to Him and listen.

I like all the Bible quotes. It means Lord cares me and I work for him. I learned the information about it from writing service when I was writing paper for my exam. I read all religion books over all the message is same, just love people and serve the poor.

I love this quote as well. I mean, I love god and his words. It is not just this quote, but all the words that he spoke is something that Telesteps makes a lot of sense and I am sure that if we can strive towards it, then maybe we can have true peace in our time.

This would be a good way by which more and more people do learn to adjust and to live and let live in the best possible methods. I hope to see it in a much more advanced manner. It is an amazing feeling contact windows support

Psalm 23:1
by: Pastor Schultz

Your quote from Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want." What version of the Bible is that? It is the same version as the Lutheran Book of Worship which says it's from the Episcopal Common Book of Prayer - but does not say what version of the Bible it is. Please email me at mjs1747@aol.com with the info, if you have it. Thanks!
