If There Is A God, Why Do We Lack?

Bible Summary. There is a God. The reason we lack is that we do not really believe God's promises and we are not obedient to Him. The Lord is our shepherd. If we are His good and faithful sheep, we will not go lacking. Most of us know that our parents will always strive to provide us with good things. God who is perfect and never lies can do so much better in providing us good things. God will provide good things if we trust in Him. Many of us think we can go it alone without God, but who really is better equipped to take on the challenges of this world? A sheep with a good shepherd? Or a young lion who wants to go it alone?
