Planted By God to Display His Glory -Isaiah 61:3

Everything I Need…

Sharing today in remembrance of our beloved Grammy, who passed into the loving arms of Jesus on this day 11 years ago. She was not just a mom, she was WOW!

 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. (Psalm 23:1 KJV)

Can you imagine telling 2-year-olds that they “shall not want”?

They do want! They want candy bars at the store. They want their siblings’ toys. They want doughnuts for dinner. A child wants a lot of things, but a parent can say “no” if it’s something the child doesn’t need.

As grown-ups, we have “wants,” too. And sometimes our wants are not so different (bring on the chocolate!). But we have a Heavenly Father who can say “no” too.

Just like a 2-year-old, we don’t always get what we want, but 2 Peter 1:3 says,

“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.”
