Psalm 34:9, 10

FRIDAY

NAU Psalm 34:9 O fear the LORD, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want. 10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.

NIV Psalm 34:9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. 10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

KJV Psalm 34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

There’s that word again – FEAR the LORD! ‘Yirah’ makes another appearance! Those who fear the LORD are reminded (commanded) to keep their focus – not on their circumstances but on the LORD! The inexperienced (i.e. the young lions) lose their focus and put it on their circumstances rather than the LORD. When they lose their focus they experience suffering. But when they have a proper focus (verse 10) they do not lack His care and attention.

Are you afflicted? Keep your focus on the LORD. He promises protection for those who fear/reverence Him. When this focus is maintained they will experience the fullness of the LORD’s protection.
