Max Lucado – The Prison of Want


Listen to Today’s Devotion

Are you in prison?  You are if you feel better when you have more and worse when you have less.  If your happiness comes from something you deposit, drive, drink, or digest, then face it—you are in prison, the prison of want.

That’s the bad news.  The good news is that you have a visitor.  And your visitor has a message that can get you released.  Make your way into the receiving room.  Take your seat in the chair, and look across the table at the psalmist David.  He motions for you to lean forward.  “I have a secret to tell you,” he whispers, “the secret of satisfaction. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”  It’s as if he is saying, What I have in God is greater than what I don’t have in life.  You think you and I could learn to say the same?
