Recently, I read this daily devotional from Joel Osteen and it made so much sense.  We often forget that God has put everything in us that we will ever need to survive and thrive in this world in which we have been placed.  We only need to believe it, and act on it in a godly and righteous way.  Just wanted to share it with you.

LACK NO GOOD THING

“…Those who seek the Lord
lack no good thing.”
Psalm 34:10, NIV

“When God created you, He put in you everything you need to fulfill your purpose in the Earth. You have the talent, the creativity and the ideas. You are full of discipline, focus and self-control. You have strength, determination and resolve. The Creator of the universe has crowned you with His favor. If you’re going to live a victorious life, you have to see yourself as a “no lack” person.

If you go around thinking, “I’ll never get out of debt. I’ll never have enough,” what you’re really saying is, “I’m lacking talent. I’m lacking ability.” Or, “I’ll never lose this weight. I’ll never break this bad habit.” You’re saying, “I’m lacking discipline. I’m lacking self-control. I don’t have enough.” If you see yourself as lacking, what does that say about God?

Deep down you have to know that because you trust in the Lord, you are a “no lack” person. Meditate on the fact that Almighty God breathed His life into you. He has already equipped and empowered you. You may have difficulties, but it’s not a surprise to God. He has equipped you, and you are well able to fulfill your destiny!”

Let us say like King David, we lack nothing in the Lord.  It is because of Him and His gracious love and mercy that we have all we will ever need.
