We all have needs in order to live and survive. As humans, we have these primary needs: food, shelter and clothing. We also need a job that will help us to earn money, among other things. But have you ever thought about what are the things that we REALLY need and where can we find those?
When Jesus came and lived here on earth, He invited people to come to Him. He called people to believe that God exists and to know how great His LOVE is. Jesus still does it today.
John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
These are the things we need that only God can provide:
John 3:15 “that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
Mark 8:34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
Comfort – In trial and in sorrow, only God can comfort and ease the pain in you. He will give you peace and happiness that the world cannot give. He is just a prayer away.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
Wisdom – In making decisions, we need wisdom to know what is right in the eyes of the Lord. We can ask for God’s wisdom anytime.
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you
Strength – When we are weary, the Lord gives us strength. God will make us strong when we are weak.
Psalms 29:11 The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Jesus said, “Whoever comes to me, I will never drive away.” Are you ready to seek Jesus and accept all of these blessings from God?
