It was a few weeks ago that I was talking to God about some different areas in our life. As I paused in thought I remembered the phrase, “I shall not want”.
It is in the first line of the 23rd Psalm. A pretty common verse, yet, in that moment it became a promise I could believe.
It was really an amazing moment.
So often though I look at the snapshots of my life and feel uncertain.
I feel uncertain of what is right, of what I can expect, and of the future.
I forget the ridiculous blessings, gifts, miracles. I forget who God is.
I forget to bring the groceries bills, the sickness, the tiredness, the bad attitudes, the relationships, the uncertainty and ALL the stuff that life is made of before the One who I know as faithful, as loving, and as pursuing friend.
When I forget, I choose the only thing that looks certain, fear.
I shall not want.
It is a promise based on who Jesus is-
I can be certain.
I shall not want for time. I shall not want for energy. I shall not want for strength. I shall not want for material goods. I shall not want for joy.
“Feed on His faithfulness” (ISV)
I feel like a child who has picked up a very common stone. These are common truths. Yet, these words have become treasured promises I mean to keep.
May this be a day beyond what you can imagine.
Good morning, Lisa D.
