There are benefits in seeking the Lord

How would you like to lack nothing and lack no good thing? Blessings come to those who seek the Lord and fear HIM.

□ Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

□ Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him will lack nothing.

□ The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

□ Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Psalm 34: 8-11

The fear (worship) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. There are two groups of people: those who (worship) the Lord and those who do not. (If) you will fear (worship) the Lord (then) you will lack nothing. You are saved from the wrath of God. HIS wrath is toward those who are against HIM and deny HIM. (If) they will seek the Lord, (then) they will not lack any good thing. The Lions get weak and hungry but those who seek the Lord find refuge, safety, provision and rest. You will lack no good thing in seeking the Lord.

What are you seeking? The good things are lasting and eternal. Are you seeking the temporal, which fades and decays? The temporal lust and craving do not provide ultimate fulfillment. Your old nature is in conflict with your new nature in Christ. The old nature desires jealousy, discord, rage, envy, and selfish ambition.

Here are the benefits of seeking and fearing (worshipping) the Lord:

1. lack nothing
2. find refuge
3. safety, provision and rest
4. lack no good

You are invited in this passage to taste and see the Lord. This is your invitation to try HIM out. Taste and see that HE is good. Sample the food before you eat the meal. Try HIM out and see if what HE says is good.

Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. Psalm 34: 12-16

Walk in the confidence that you are a child of God today. Know that you do not lack any good thing. God is giving you HIS best as you seek HIM and revere HIM. His best may come in the form of a test or circumstance. Know God loves you. Seek first HIS Kingdom and HIS righteousness today.
