I lack for nothing… the Lord is my shepherd, my father, my deliverer, my Jehovah Jireh, my provider and yet how many times do I fear that I will not have enough. That somehow I will be forgotten, or that I am not seen. That He will not protect me in this. Or I start scrapping around trying to defend myself, or figure out things for myself instead of leaning into His perfect wisdom which He says He will give generously without finding fault if we just ask. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and yet I forget to ask for even my daily bread. His mercies are new every morning, and yet I forget those are for me as I dwell on all that I failed at the day before, or years before. He is slow to anger and full of hesed: mercy, kindness, love…. it is who He is and who He is for me. I lack nothing.
Lord, help me to live and walk in this truth. Thank you for always providing what I need, even when I have missed your hand or heart. Thank you that you continue to bless and give generously, even when I forget to ask. Help me remember. You told the Israelites to remember over and over because you know we are a people who forget. Help me to not forget your goodness. Help me to live as the daughter of the King, instead of one who has been orphaned, overlooked, and forgotten. Help me to remember to remind others too of what you have done and will do for them and who they really are in your Kingdom.

Such a good post! It is easy t get caught up in what we feel we lack and forget that God longs to give us exactly what we need. I love your prayer too – I’m always glad to read of God’s patience with the Israelites as I think I can be just the same at times! Visiting from FMF #27.
Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your encouragement. I am so thankful God gives us the Body of Christ to do this journey together. Blessings.
