Because the Lord is my Shepherd, it gives me the confidence and hope to say, ‘I shall not want.’
Why am I so confident? Because I know Whom I serve, He will not disappoint me. He is a faithful God. Out of nothing he makes something. He cares for His own. He is the Good Shepherd- not the hired hand. He is committed to my wellbeing. He has the wherewithal to provide for me. He owns the cattle on the thousand hills. Silver and gold belong to Him. His Name is Jehovah Jireh –‘the Lord will provide.’
He fed Elijah –His servant, using a bird. He rained manna from above to feed His people. When Abraham trusted Him by not withholding Isaac, God provided a Lamb for Himself and for Abraham. His word says as long as He remains, seed time and harvest time shall not cease. My God will supply all I need according to His glorious riches by Christ Jesus. He fed over 5000 people with five loaves and two fish. He is a miracle-working God. He daily loads me with benefits to enjoy. He satisfies my mouth with good things so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
I will not lean on the arm of the flesh. I will trust in the Lord at all times. I will not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him and He will direct my path.
