Billy Graham Daily Devotional September 30, 2017
Topic: Our Greatest Need
Key Verse: I stretch forth my hands unto thee; my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land…- Psalm 143:6
MESSAGE: Not long ago I visited the dean of a great American university. We looked out the window of his office and watched hundreds of students walking to their classes. I asked the dean, “What is the greatest problem at this university?” He thought a moment and answered, “Emptiness.” So many people today are bored, lonely, searching for something. You can see it in their faces.
Billy Graham Daily Devotional Messages: Do Not Compromise
One girl home from college told her wealthy father, “Father, I want something but I don’t know what it is.” That’s true of many people; we want something to meet the deepest problems of our lives, but we haven’t found it. David said, “I have found it. I shall not want.” The Apostle Paul expressed it, “I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.”
You don’t have to give up on life, to throw up your hands and cry, “It’s no use.” . . . You can have God’s peace, God’s joy, God’s happiness, God’s security; and yours can become the most thrilling life in the world.
Prayer for the day: Lord Jesus, You quench the thirst and longing of my soul. Praise Your blessed name.
