The Lord is my Shepherd–I shall not want!

(“Every Day!” 1872)

The Lord is my Shepherd–I shall not want!” Psalm 23:1

“I shall not want!” Surely not! He is the Good Shepherd who gave His life for His sheep; and if He has loved me, and given Himself for me–then what will He withhold?¬†

Oh that I knew Him better, and trusted Him as He deserves! Then I would be kept quiet from fear of evil, and be ever assured that He will supply all my needs, according to His riches in glory. 

Do I need¬†guidance? The Good Shepherd goes before His sheep–He instructs and teaches us in the way we should go.¬†

Do I¬†wander–and need to be reclaimed? He seeks and finds His straying ones, “He restores my soul, and leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.”

Am I wounded? He binds up my wounds, and heals me. 

Do I need¬†rest¬†and¬†refreshment? “He makes me to lie down in green pastures, and leads me beside the still waters.”¬†

Do I need¬†encouragement? “His rod and His staff, they comfort me.”¬†

Do I need¬†provision? “He spreads a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”¬†

My Shepherd is infinitely¬†wise¬†and¬†kind¬†and¬†gracious. Surely then, “Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever!”

“The Lord my Shepherd is,
 I shall be well supplied;
 Since He is mine, and I am His,
¬†What can I want beside?”
