"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want"
(Psalm 23:1)

  When the Lord Jesus said: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10), He was promising us a life that would never have a lack of anything because He would "supply all (our) need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19). That's why the one who can truly confess that "the LORD is my shepherd", can also confess, "I shall not want". In other words, each and every one that has a living relationship with the mighty JEHOVAH as their "good shepherd" (John 10:14) shall never lack anything that is for their good for now and for eternity; for He is "the eternal God" (Deuteronomy 33:27), who loves them "with an everlasting love" (Jeremiah 31:3); and so He will tend to them as the shepherd does his sheep, so that none of His promises will fail them; "for all the promises of God in him", who is "the good shepherd", "are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Corinthians 1:20). Note that the rest of Psalm 23 gives us a picture that once the LORD becomes our "shepherd", and we are His sheep, that He will provide everything, and take care of us, even "through the valley of the shadow of death" (v.4), forever and ever; for "surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever" (v.6).
