“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
II Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)
Need. That is certainly a relative word. We have taken the word “need” and have turned it into everything from a wish list to a whim. Larry Crabb addresses this in his book, “The Pressure’s Off.” He writes about what we really need. He writes, “Nothing wrong with desiring safe airplane flights and warm marriages and a decent income. But none of these things, none of our hopes for a “Better Life of Blessings”, represents God’s priority agenda—We need only to be safe from any power that opposes God’s agenda for our lifes.” And what is that agenda that we need? Crabb shares the three needs that God wants for us; radical forgiveness, supernatural love and spiritual might. The good news is that God is able to grant you these same needs through His grace. Imagine, all of the forgiveness, love and might that you will need in order to be involved in His good work is yours for the asking. Today, might we lay aside those “other needs” that we think are so important and ask God to meet our real needs of forgiveness, love and spiritual might.
Father, I need You and Your spiritual provisions of forgiveness, love and spiritual might more than anything else in the world. Help meet my real needs today. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
God provides me with forgiveness, love and spiritual might
See yourself in great need. At first you think it is money, fame and possessions that will fill your soul. You ask God for help but you sense that there is more that you need. He speaks to you and you can feel that your heart is really seeking spiritual satisfaction. You open your heart and He fills it with forgiveness, love and spiritual might.
