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 wishlist 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 lives.” And what is that agenda that we need? Dr. Crabb shares three needs that God wants for us; radical forgiveness, supernatural love, and spiritual might. The good news is that God can grant you these needs. Through His grace, God provides all of the forgiveness, love and might you will need in order to be involved in His good work. Today lay aside those “other needs” that you think are so important and ask God to meet your 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. In Jesus’ name.
