Lack No Good Thing

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.(Psalm 34:10, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD

It’s easy to think, “If I had more money, I could accomplish my dreams. If I had this or that, or knew the right people, then I could do something great.” But as long as you feel like you’re lacking or that you were shortchanged, then you’ll make excuses to be less than your best.

Today, get a new perspective. God has given you exactly what you need for the season that you’re in. You have the talent, the friends, the connections, the resources, the experience you need for right now. It doesn’t mean that’s all you’re ever going to have. You may need more next month or next year. When that time comes, God will make sure that you have what you need. Because your trust is in the Lord, you don’t have to worry. You lack no good thing.

Remember, you are equipped, empowered and anointed for this moment. You are not lacking. You have what it takes. Rejoice because increase is coming. Promotion is coming. New opportunities are coming. You are ready for whatever may come because you put your faith and trust in Him.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, thank You for Your provision in my life. Today I declare that I trust You! You give me everything that I need as I rest and hope in You in Jesus’ name. Amen!

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” {2 Corinthians 9:7}

Everlasting Love

Have you ever been in a relationship and your boyfriend at the time wrote you a love letter?  Or, have you ever had a secret crush and you received a greeting card and nice note detailing his
adoration for you? If so, you probably scrutinized each word, took in every compliment and were sincerely flattered by the gesture, even if the feelings weren’t mutual.

Even if you’ve never received a love letter from an ex, I want to remind you that you actually have been given a love letter by someone, and that’s God. God loves you so much in that not only did He send His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die in your place for your sins (Isaiah 53:10)…not only did God send us the Holy Spirit to live inside of us and guide us after Jesus ascended back to heaven (John 14:16)…God made sure you are constantly reminded of His love and adoration for you as He inspired men to pen the pages of The Bible (2 Timothy 3:16) – so you’ll always know that you’re loved.

Never take for granted God’s love for you. Constantly remind yourself by reading parts of His  Love Letter to you each day.  God loves you with an unconditional, everlasting love that will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). Not only that, He loves you so much that He has committed to spend the rest your life with you, including the afterlife – He wants to spend eternity with you. There is no greater love than the love of Jesus.  He is the greatest love of all.

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.  Jeremiah 31:3

Chocolate Vent’s Quote of the Week: “YOU’RE NOT POWERFUL ENOUGH TO STOP GOD’S PLAN.”

Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.” {2 Chronicles 20:6}

Examine Your Relationships This Year

There is a saying, you can’t pick your family but you can pick your friends.
An ideal, healthy friendship relationship, whether it’s with your girlfriend or a male platonic friend, is one that, as the Word calls it, iron sharpens iron.
Proverbs 27:17 reads, Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Sharpen means to be or make sharp and the word, countenance, means face, favor, or presence.
You want those in your presence, whether they’re close friends or acquaintances, to sharpen you, keep you on your toes, and you do the same for them.  You don’t need people around you who simply agree with you all the time.
You need people who, when trouble comes, they can speak a Word to you in due season, encourage you when you’re down, and help you see how through God’s Word and God’s love you can press on.
Examine your relationships and see which should stay and which should go away, then act accordingly.  As the saying goes, some people are in your life for a reason, for a season, or for a lifetime.
Pray about which category your friends fall, then pray and ask God how to proceed.
