I Shall Not Want

In a recent time of prayer for healing, I was encouraged through the faith of others in seeking God and putting their whole lives in His hands.

“When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.” (Matthew 14:34-36)

They knew and believed in Jesus and had such faith that even just to be near him, to touch the mere hem of his cloak, they would be healed.

To have such great trust in the Almighty is honouring to Him and faith-building for all of us as we become witnesses to His work in our lives.

When I read Psalm 23, I often stop at the first verse where it says, “I shall not want.” What isn’t written, but implied, is that “I shall not want, any thing more or less than you. You perfectly satisfy everything in me.”

As you continue to pray, as you rest, as you spend with God and with others, may you do all this with the great faith that just to be near Him, is more than enough. May He satisfy the deepest parts of your soul and may your faith in Him influence your prays and trust for His answers.
