I Will Lack No Good Thing?

We pray, and pray, and seek the Lord, and pray some more.  Still, sometimes it seems that what we think seems to be the best for us doesn't come our way.  There's always more room for learning to trust God, to put our faith in His Sovereign control, to yield our desires to Him in childlike peace that He will bring all we need in this life.

I say it again...still, sometimes it seems that it never will come.  Perhaps it won't.  But, if  "it" doesn't come, then "it" is not the GOOD thing. We will not be "lacking" in our lives in anything.  I know it is so because His Word tells us.

Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
(Psalm 34:9-10 ESV)

Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing!  Talk about a delightful way to pray!  First things first.  Seek the LORD.  As a result: nothing good will ever be lacking.
