Devo: Prison of Want

Come with me to the most populated prison in the world. It’s name is WANT—the prison of want. You’ve seen her prisoners. They want something bigger. Nicer. Faster. Thinner. They want a new job. A new house. A new spouse.  If you feel better when you have more and worse when you have less—you’re in the prison of want. If your happiness comes from something you deposit, drive, drink, or digest, then face it—you’re in the prison of want!

The good news is, you have a visitor. It is the psalmist, David. I have a secret to tell you, he whispers, the secret of satisfaction. From Psalm 23:1, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” David found the place where discontent goes to die. It’s as if he’s saying, What I have in God is greater than what I don’t have in this life.  Do you think you and I could learn to say the same?  — Max Lucado
