RE Verse reading–Psalm 23, Psalm 27:1-5, Psalm 116:1-9, Matthew 6:25-33 (day one) “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want” (23:1) Fairly often I meet people who have achieved a degree of success (career, personal, financial) but who are, nevertheless, still anxious, worried, restless. These encounters always remind me of Jesus and His conversation with the Rich Young Ruler ( Mark 10) “One thing you lack”, says the Lord and then proceeds to tell him how to establish a relationship with God (via faith) that would yield peace and life. In what may be the most familiar passage of scripture in the entire Bible, David describes such a relationship–one that makes a person grateful and confident and hopeful, no matter the challenges being faced. Friend, have you found such a relationship? It is possible! As we read this week, I am praying for God to show us how to NOT LACK THE ONE THING WE NEED MOST–a heart that is calm and confident in Him!
