Lack Nothing

“For the LORD your God has blessed you in all that you have done; He has known your wanderings through this great wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you; you have not lacked a thing.”‘ Deuteronomy 2:7

Think about this…The Israelites wandered through the wilderness for 40 years , many times they told Moses they wanted to turn around and return to slavery in Egypt. There were times when they felt like they were being left for dead in the desert, however the whole time God was with them!

When they were hungry, God sent them Manna from Heaven. When they became thirsty , God split the rock open and provided them endless streams of water. God even had them setup a tabernacle, and he lived with them in the desert.

Even though they felt they were left for dead, God was always with them and they never lacked a thing! Think about that

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. Psalm 23:1 (NIV)

Some English translations of Psalm 23 says I lack Nothing! Some say I shall not want, both translations are correct as the original Hebrew word is (eh-sar) to need or to lack.

Meaning if Jesus is truly our Great Shepherd we don’t need anything, because God provides for his sheep. The same as God provided for the Israelites throughout the Wilderness , he will provide for you, you shall lack nothing!

Some might say, but I really need this and that, do you really need it? Or is it just your human pride desiring it? God provides what you need, you will lack nothing , Amen!
