The Lord Is My Shepherd; I Shall Not Want: Psalms 23:1

Psalm 23:1  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
Give me ten thousand pounds, and one reverse of fortune may scatter it all away; but let me have a spiritual hold of this divine assurance, “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want,” then I am all right, I am set up for life. I cannot break with such stock as this in hand. I never can be a bankrupt, for I hold this security, “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.” Do not give me ready money now; give me a check book, and let me draw what I like. This is what God does with the believer. He does not immediately transfer His inheritance to him, but lets him draw what he needs out of the riches of His fullness in Christ Jesus.
