    Default What DO You NEED?

    What DO You NEED?
    By: Maxine M.

    God shall supply ALL your NEEDs according to His riches in Glory, Philippians 4:19 states
    A rock solid promise; instance confidence for the future this generates
    An assurance He will provide, hope of good things surely awaits

    But just what are our needs? First we think of food, water, shelter over our head
    Transportation, clean air, health, companionship, education, understanding what is read
    Enough money to meet necessities…all of which we consider our daily bread

    Now God knows there’s much more we all need if we’re to truly exist
    Those broken bones or that ill health, sent to slow you down, whereas before, quiet time you’d resist
    In recovery you’ll have the time to contemplate, OBSERVE things in life we might have missed

    Have you ever failed at something when you were convinced your way would succeed?
    Did you consider He knew you NEEDED to lose your pride; isn’t that where this achievement would lead?
    That you NEEDED this lesson in trust and putting Him 1st as His word had decreed

    Every living soul NEEDS discipline, even when it’s not what anyone desires
    But a conforming to our will to authority is what maturity requires
    So is that stress in your life really HIS needed correcting hand with which our spirit thus requires?

    Exercise is NEEDED for all of us to properly grow, reach our full potential at best
    Physical & spiritual muscles will experience impotence if they’re always at rest
    A prayer warrior can do amazing feats, makes the lives around them blessed

    Sad times in life are also NEEDED, how else would we know the beauty His love brings
    It’s how we learn to appreciate special days, since memories are a defense against bad things
    Tears are dried when we remember the promises, when His Spirit and our heart sings

    We all NEED love and the sense of security this will provide
    Jesus and His Father are our source of all love…it’s endless supply will forever abide
    Even though Satan daily, in his sneaky evil way, this fact tries to hide

    Now once again it’s the Christmas season and the search for gifts to give has begun
    What’s on your loved one’s wish list, what will bring the most fun
    What do they WANT or NEED…stress will build until it’s over and done

    But what will have a LASTING effect on them year after year
    Not the toys (child’s or adult’s), the sweater, technology, diamonds for the ear
    Because the MOST needed is God’s gift of Salvation, for SOON the Saviour will REAPPEAR

    We NEED to realize the season of Christmas is about the Saviour who came to earth as a child
    Born in a manger, then grew in obedience to His parents; God in a human body compiled
    Knowing He was destined to be tortured and, in agony, die on a cross, offering forgiveness the lost defiled

    This is mankind’s GREATEST NEED, to be saved & forgiven from their sin & shame
    But like any gift offered, it must be ACCEPTED, by fully trusting in Jesus’ Holy name
    If you reject this gift, don’t acknowledge your NEED, you’ll have only yourself to blame

    At Christmas, most will over spend, trying their best to HUMAN love show
    But God’s gift is free!! Freely given…can be freely received here on earth below
    Comes with an eternal life time guarantee, since Jesus paid all the debt WE owe

    You can’t beat a deal like that, giving your heart to the One who can supply ALL your need
    Supply them all year long…not just as a holiday ritualistic creed
    He gives ABUNDANT friendship, companionship, comfort…IF His guidance you seek

    God can supply other’s needs through His children…those willing to give a helping hand
    Through Him we can furnish many of life’s necessities, food, water, shelter…life’s immediate demand
    But also to tell people of the gift He offers; help them to, the plan of Salvation understand

    So don’t let this Christmas go by without Him; don’t let the TRUE meaning be lost!
    Let Him supply ALL your need, involve others in your joy, spread the Gospel at any cost
    You’ll find overflowing peace; this NEED is supplied by the Saviour when a path of doubt & fear are crossed

    James 5: 13-18
    Meeting Specific Needs
    13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses[e] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
