I shall not want, I rather desire

A shift in perspective is all we need in order to recognize the greatness within. Although we may have needs and wants the words we say often shape our perspective and world view.

We can read in Psalms chapter 23, ” I shall not want. ”

The truth we encounter in this verse is one of power and dominion over every situation. It does not imply that we Christians cannot want or need, rather it is proclaiming your inherited wealth in Christ by explaining that you will not be bound by wants.

God delights in giving us the desires of our hearts. We can read the truth in Psalms chapter 37, verse 4, “Delight yourselves in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your hearts.”

We can also see that to delight is a way of being. In order to transform our inner world, we must re-word ourselves. What I mean by this is, instead of telling God your wants, ask Him for what you desire. Words can shape our lives and we cannot speak contrary to His words. Ask for that in which you desire and forget not His benefits.

Prayer:
Father in heaven I thank you for knowing my needs and wants before I even ask. I ask you to instruct me and give me the wisdom to present my desires to you and teach me to delight myself in You.

In your Jesus name Amen!
