Nothing Shall I Want


Psalm 149:4

For the Lord takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory.

While the consumeristic culture honors the rich with victory…not so with God. While society urges us to add more to our lives…amass more and more wealth, power and prestige…the inner spirit urges us to do the opposite. The spiritual journey is a constant subtraction…a taking away of things that vie for our attention…so that in the end there is nothing separating us from God. This is why some people at life’s end have no trouble passing quietly into eternal life…while others fight in bitter anguish. They don’t know how to let go of all the stuff of the world. This is why the poor…or those who have no attachment to material possessions, power or prestige (the “poor in spirit”)…are many times further along in their spiritual journeys. They have had no other option but to turn to God for help in their struggles. What is blocking your path from the victory of oneness with God?
