Scripture: Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. (NIV)
Nugget: God knows what we need; as our shepherd, God supplies these needs. There’s no reason for us to fret or to fear--He has it all under control.
In the midst of this Christmas season, keep in mind the differences between wants and needs. It’s so easy to get caught up in the spending, the rushing, & the wanting! Don’t overlook that God continues to provide our needs ALL the time; not just for a season.
Focus on the blessings that God has given you; don’t overlook the great gifts that exist every day. We are lacking nothing! Thanking God for all things!
Quote: “Some people are so cynical about free gifts that they refuse to visit stores that offer such extras. Many in our world reject the free gift from God and they refuse the good things He has to offer. God will provide for your every need, and as you grow in faith and trust, He will fill your heart with the desire for the good things in life. Jesus Christ is the bread of life. He is the Word made flesh. He was sent from heaven to live, die and rise again to new life so we can freely live in the love and glory of the Most High God. It costs us nothing. Eat and drink the gift of eternal life. Partake in the bread and living water that is Christ Jesus, and be satisfied. Thanks be to God.” -Peggy Hoppes
