What’s your need today? How are you going to go about it? What’s your plan to fill your need? Your answers will reveal a lot about you. Too often we try to be independent until we can’t do it. For some of us, it’s easier to ask for help than others. But even the best human efforts will not help you in all of your needs. You need God, only he can fill all your needs. So bring your needs to God. He can help you.
Bring your needs to God
F.B. Meyer has said, “The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.” It’d be tragic to forfeit God’s help. God is more than ready to help you, just ask for his help. God is waiting for you to come to him with your messes, nothing will surprise him. Only God can create something beautiful out of our troubled past. Bring your needs to God.
And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:19, AMP)
How would your life change if your first instinct would always be to turn to God? Because that’s where your help comes from. Whenever you have any kind and any size of trouble or need, just turn to God and let him handle it. He is way more qualified to take care of you than you are yourself. It might feel scary to let God rule your life but once you’ve experienced his love and care, you don’t want to manage on your own. Hence, bring your needs to God and be blessed. Time after time.
Forgive us for trying to manage our lives on our own.
Come and invade our lives, Lord.
Show us the way.
Help us, Lord.
We’ve created some messes again.
Create something beautiful out of our lives.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Do you bring your needs to God?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you bring your needs to God.
