Again in Psalm 34 we find corroborating evidence of God’s ability to meet our daily needs. In verse 9 the Psalmist says “O fear the Lord, you saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him.” If you only interpret the word ‘fear’ used here without understanding its full meaning, you’ll be left in a quandary, not confident the Lord will meet your needs.
The Hebrew meaning refers to reverencing God; esteeming Him above everything and looking to Him alone to supply whatever you need. It does not mean to be afraid of. That wrong interpretation will lead to you think you can’t trust God, that perhaps He hasn’t really forgiven you, or question if He truly love you.
You reverence—Honor—God by honoring His Son, Jesus, and what He has done for you. Believe that He is good—always. He is your provider therefore you shall not want (Psalm 23:1). Allow your heart to trust Him more and you’ll experience His provisions and goodness. There is NO WANT for those who place their trust and confidence in a good God. Receive this truth today that you are free from want (lack, deficiency, need).
