Better Than Lions

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall lack nothing. Psalm 23:1

It's better to be a sheep than a lion. Lions are fierce and strong; sheep are weak and defenseless, but they don't have to fear for their safety. Lions are mighty hunters, yet it is the sheep that doesn't go hungry. That's because the sheep has something the lion doesn't have--a shepherd. The lion must depend upon its own strength and cunning; the sheep belongs to one who will lay down his very life for its safety. Psalm 34:10 observes: "The lions may grow weak and hungry, / but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing." In other words, even the strongest, most ambitious people may not always have all they need, but those who trust God to provide for them will have all their needs met and more.
God Himself is the greatest security you have. No enemy can succeed against you when you are under God's care.
