Daily Devotional | Trusting The Lord For Your Needs

Psalm 23:1, 2 KJV
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
 
Do you trust God to meet all of your needs? As a believer, you must be able to trust, follow, and believe that in Christ, your needs will be met. Remember, God knows what you need even before you ask for it. When you pray, asking for God’s provision, you put yourself in the position to receive from God all He wants to give you. When you pray expectantly, you can pray confidently that you will receive from God what He desires to give you!
 
As a believer, your priorities must change. Too many of us are missing out on God’s blessings because our life is absorbed in trying to meet our own needs. Rather than trusting God to meet our needs, too often we go out in search of a fix and buy what we think we need…only to go into debt doing it! Then consumed with that debt, we can’t be a blessing to others. Believe Him for great things in your life. When you do, you will begin to see how your life can indeed become a blessing to others. The Bible says that “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 1:20-22 NIV)
 
Here is another question to think about–Is it difficult for you to be satisfied?  Instead of being thankful in all situations, Do you complain a lot? Remember, when you complain, your complaints are against God.  Moses also said, “You will know that it was the LORD when he gives you meat to eat in the evening and all the bread you want in the morning, because he has heard your grumbling against him. Who are we? You are not grumbling against us, but against the LORD.” (Exodus 16:8 NIV)  God has made it clear in His word that He is not pleased by our constant complaining. The Israelites in the Wilderness constantly complained and murmured about their circumstances, and they all perished in the Wilderness. Only two went into the Promised Land and they were Joshua and Caleb. We should wholeheartedly trust that God will never leave us or forsake us. We will not lack if our trust is in Him. Amen!  
 
As a Christian, If you believe the promises of God , it will surely come to pass according to his will. According to the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Corinthians 1:20-22, being faithful to God guarantees four primary needs of any believer.(1). God’s promises to you as long as you remain with Him you will be fulfilled.
(2). It is God that will anoint you through obedience.
(3). It is God that Seals you if you believe and remain faithful to Him.
(4). Only God will establish you at the right time.

 
Trusting the Lord for your needs is a character upgrade… a spiritual maturity. You have to trust Him, walk with Him, honor Him, and obey Him. Do you believe that God can meet all your needs? Are you a believer? If you have answers to these questions, what are you going to change in your life? In Philippians 4:19, it is said that “..the Lord shall supply all your need according to His riches and glory, through Jesus Christ that strengthens us” Remember that “it is the Lord that gives you power to make wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18) “Have faith in God” (Mark 11:22), and He will bless you. Amen.
 
Scripture of the day: But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. ~ Matthew 6:33
