Psalm 23 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” The blessing of God’s children is to live a life of ‘I shall not want.’ There are two ways to applying this: 1) you try to get everything you want so that you don’t want anything else, or 2) you learn how to not want. The first way makes you dependent on the ever-changing world and as soon as you get what you want, you want more. The other isn’t dependent on how much you have or don’t have. ‘I shall not want’, comes not by merely saying “The Lord is my Shepherd”, but really knowing what it means. Let your focus and joy be the Lord; direct your needs to Him. Be blessed by following Him. Let Him take care of you and you’ll be able to not want. A life of God being your Shepherd is a life of not wanting. Learn the secret of being content, having or not having. You’re not wanting when you’re filled by God. When you learn the secret of not wanting, your whole life will be wanting for nothing.
Scripture: Phil. 4:11–13
