A Trustful Confidence
Psalm 23:1-6
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.…

The confidence was well grounded.

1. You shall not want a guardian; I will protect you.

2. You shall not want a justifying righteousness, by which you may have a good right and title to a place in My kingdom.

3. You shall not want a meetness for the kingdom of glory. I will make you free from the accursed bonds of sin.

4. You shall not want persevering grace. I, who have "begun a good work in you, will perform it."

5. You shall not want spiritual refreshment.

6. You shall not want needful support. The world shall not overcome you. You shall gain the victory over its smiles and frowns. The Great Shepherd will crown you with His loving kindness forever.

(J. Jennings.)
