SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/25/15- “Seeking The LORD Yields Great Benefits!” (Psalms 34:10)
Premise Question: When has the combination of youth, perfect health, great wealth, competent expertise, lots of experience, personal associations and prestigious influence, ever assured or guaranteed someone’s success in completely overcoming or avoiding entirely, the myriad of difficult situations, circumstances and challenges that life can and does present to everyone?
“Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.” (Psalms 34:10 NLT)
It matters not how young and virile you are, nor the level of vim, vigor and vitality you exhibit and may well be at in your life, or even the amount of talent, treasure and temerity you have amassed and possess, because you are still going to eventually be subject to the vagaries and vicissitudes of life, grow weak and have a hunger and thirst, that nothing in this world has the ability to satisfy nor quench. But, those who ardently seek The LORD God Almighty, with a fierce fervency, will never be deficient or have a lack of provision of anything that is good, necessary or needed to survive and thrive, not only in this life, but in the life to come, as well. (Psalm 34:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Not having any combination of, nor even if someone was fortuitous enough to have a combination of all the advantages of youth, health, wealth, expertise, experience, associations and influences, does it ever guarantee that they’ll be successful in being fully insulated against, or be able to avoid entirely the things that can and do happen to everyone in this life. Having perfect health doesn’t guarantee great wealth, nor does having great wealth assure good health. For even expert doctors, with lots of expertise and experience in their field, still get sick, suffer and die. The rich are still subject and vulnerable to losing their wealth and going broke. The highly educated, trained and connected have been and can still be seen at the unemployment office. And, even if someone who is related to, or has an association with, the most influential and powerful in the world, they can still be found to be lacking and living an impoverished life. Any or all of these things can happen to anyone at anytime. It’s called life! But, whoever recognizes that it is only when one places their full trust and faith in The LORD Jesus Christ, that it completely guarantees and entirely assures that they will not ever lack any good thing in this life, or in the life to come! Seeking and trusting The LORD does yield great benefits! Blessings…
