Green pastures are provided by the Great Shepherd for all his flock. The food is nutritious, delicious and abundant. And the sheep gather it as they need it, each for himself. There is none laid up in store. It is not fed out dry by hired men.
The prayer which our Lord teaches us is, “Give us this day our daily bread.” There should be no starvelings in the flock. Saints may be without a preacher, but their great Provider is always at hand. He supplies their wants, sometimes in one way, sometimes in another; but he never leaves them to suffer for lack of bread. “The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”
