God is all you need

God Is All You Need

Rita SpringerIn a worship conference several years back I heard Rita Springer say…

“You’ll never know that God is all you need until you reach a point where God is all you have.”

Actually, you don’t have to lose everything to learn this. It just takes one sudden storm.

You can have a multitude of friends and piles of money and a great big stack of success … and then one unexpected event brings you face to face with the realization that none of it matters.

In these times you learn that in spite of all your accumulated accoutrements, God is really all you have.

The good news, however, is that God is all you need. He comes to us in our weakest moments. He comforts us and reminds us of his never-ending love. Where we have failed him, he is quick to forgive.

And he remains near to us through it all.

This is why the psalmist could say…

“I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” (Psalm 57:1)

As you begin your week, keep this in mind: All you truly need you already have.
