What do you do when you find yourself in a time of need? Maybe you have a financial need...perhaps a need that relates to your health...the need of encouragement...or guidance...maybe simply a friend.
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 NLT
Let the Lord know that you need Him. Tell Him your needs. Trust Him to take care of you. “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 NLT
The truth is we all share a common need. It is our greatest need. When this need is fulfilled, all other needs take on a different perspective.
The hymn "I Need Thee Every Hour" by Annie S. Hawks and Robert Lowery best expresses this need.
I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.
I need Thee every hour, stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power when Thou art nigh.
I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, or life is in vain.
I need Thee every hour; teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill.
I need Thee every hour, most Holy One;
O make me Thine indeed, Thou blessed Son.
I need Thee, O I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.
Allow God to fulfill your greatest need...your need for Him.
