If God came to you and said He was buying you everything on your Amazon Wishlist, would you start thinking of what you want next, or would you be content and appreciate the things you have? Would you appreciate the things more, or the grace that provided it? We live in an incredibly materialistic world. This is a world of “me first” and “I want it, so I will have it” but Jesus teaches us a different lesson.

Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

Psalm 34:10b

When we seek the Giver more than the given we lack for nothing. Everything we have is from the Lord, but when we focus on those want, want, wants we forget where they come from. We think we earned them, we worked for them, we got them of our own accord – but we would have nothing if it weren’t for the grace of God.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew 6:25-26

The Lord will provide for all of our needs and we will lack for nothing in His care. Bring your focus back to Him who gives all good things and you will never be left wanting. You will be left feeling inexplicably content with all you have, knowing it is from Him who values and loves you.

Have you accepted the grace of God?

If you have not accepted the grace of God and chosen to believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to pray to God now and invite Him in, accept Jesus as the sacrifice for your sins, and repent of your sins. Submit it all to God, lay it at His feet, seek the forgiveness of God, welcome Him into your life, and believe that Jesus died and rose again to save you from your sins.
