When We Are In Need

God met one of my needs yesterday.  And He did it in a cool way.  I woke up this morning still buzzing with excitement and gratitude.

So that inspired me to write this a few moments ago:

Are any of us in need right now?

If so, let's think on these two Bible passages:

Psalm 24:1- "The Earth is the Lord's, and everything in it"

Psalm 50:10, 12 - God says about Himself, "every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills ... the world is mine, and all that is in it"

So let's think this through.  If we are in need, and if God owns this entire world, including all that is in it, then what should you do?  I'm not a rocket scientist, but I'm thinking we should go to Him and ask Him to please meet our need.  

The apostle Paul, who was an AMAZING missionary years ago, wrote the following about God in Phillipians 4:19 - "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus."

God can, and does, meet our needs.  He loves us and wants to take care of us.  Looking out for us is a big deal to Him.  No, God may not always grant us our WANTS.  At times He does.  But not always.  And that's a good thing in some cases.  Sometimes what we want is really not good for us.  It's understandable that God is not going to lavish us with everything we want.  But when the chips are down, and we are in need, God takes care of us.  How awesome is that?! 

God is good.  And He is more than generous.  So when we are in need let's just go to Him in prayer, thank Him for what He has already done in our lives, and humbly ask Him to please meet the need we have at the moment.  Then let's have faith, be patient, and wait for Him to come through on our behalf.  That is what we ought to do, and I have a feeling that is exactly what He wants us to do.

May God bless you today and meet your needs.
