I shall not want

Psalm 23:1 (KJV)


THE LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.

Many times or I would say most of the times in our life we have a needs. Need for money, house, job, good health etc.



Bible says in Psalm 23:1 If we have LORD as our shepherd then
I shall not want.
In simple words, we will not lack anything.




I shall not want Psalm 23:1Then the question is why we have a need in our life then.


The answer for this is in   
Matthew 6:33. It says – But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (KJV)

It says – But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I like when it says all these things. But in order to receive this seeking first, the kingdom of God is important.


Philippians 4:19
says – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (KJV)


In Marathi translation, it says from 
his Treasure. That means God has a Treasure and from His Treasure, He supplies all our need.
Even if we collect all the treasures of the world we cannot reach even 1% of the God’s Treasure.
So just give a thought out of that Treasure our Good Shepard is supplying our need, and because of this it is obvious that “I shall not want”


If we see in
2 Corinthians 9:8 it says “ always having all sufficiency in all things”. In Christ we have no lack.



3 Important things to remember.


1)    Lord is our Shepherd
2)    Seek His Kingdom first
3)    Trust in His Riches (Treasure)



Prayer

Dear Lord as we come near your throne of grace, as you have mentioned in Psalm 23:1 that you are our Shepherd. We ask you in the mighty name of Jesus, Lord supply our needs and not our wants and help us to seek your kingdom first and trust in your riches.


In Jesus Name,

Amen.
