The Lord is my d shepherd;
The LORD is my keeper, my guardian, my provider;
I shall not e want.
therefore, I won't need anything else.
He makes me lie down in green f pastures.
For, He makes me rest in the meadows,
He leads me beside still waters. 1
And He leads me to the quiet streams.

What's more, I will live in the house of my God for eternity!
inference
When we realize the sufficiency and value of God in Christ, then we will find ourselves content and satisfied in Him.
God's provision is so much more precious than we realize: it is He who will mold us into Christ.
Always remember this! This is His purpose for it all !
This world is becoming increasingly hostile to Christ's church. Find peace in knowing that He is faithful to His people! You will be protected!
David is writing about so much more than material well-being! See above.
Our ultimate assurance.
