~Psalm 34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

The Word of God is filled with “shall nots,” both in a negative way and in a positive way. The Ten Commandments are the most popular of the “shall nots.” But what about those that speak of God’s provisions?

This verse tells us that the one who seeks the Lord shall not lack any good thing. God’s hand of provision is upon those who seek Him. Just as He cares for the sparrow (Luke 12:6), so much more will He care for us! The times we live in are turbulent and the Word promises it will get much worse. But the Christian has the comfort that God will take care of him!

Our Shepherd, Jehovah-Raah, loves us and cares for us. Nothing shall happen to us that He has not allowed!

~1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.


~Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

It seems at times that our lives are filled with burdens and cares. It’s as though there is no relief in sight.  But there is relief in sight for the believer! Our Heavenly Father has given us the gift of His Son who has promised rest to those that come to Him.

There is no better place for the Christian to be than at rest from life’s burdens!  Despite the tumultuous seas about us, we are promised that our hearts can be at peace!  This speaks volumes to a world that has no such peace!

Thank You, Lord!
