‘I shall not want’ Psalm 23:1

This was waiting for me in my inbox this morning, sent by a friend. It blessed me so much I want to share it:
The Believer’s Daily Remembrancer by James Smith
“I shall not want.” Ps 23:1

THIS was David’s conclusion, from the belief that the Lord was his Shepherd. If we are the sheep of Christ, He will supply us. He has all things in His possession, the silver and the gold are His, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. His private mark is upon all. All spiritual blessings are in His possession also; and He has a kind, tender, and liberal heart. He will give. He has engaged to supply, conduct, protect, and present His flock upon Mount Zion. He has promised to be to us, do for us, and bestow upon us, all that our circumstances require. His conduct towards His flock in old times is a sufficient guarantee. Whenever were the righteous forsaken, or His sheep left neglected and unheeded? Did David ever want? Few passed through greater changes, or severer trials; yet upon his dying bed he tells us, he had all his desire. If you belong to Christ, you may safely conclude, “I SHALL NOT WANT.” Your fears are follies; your anxieties are groundless; your forebodings are sinful; you have a God to provide for you, and you ought to rejoice. “My God,” says the apostle, “shall supply all your needs, according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
