TOPIC: All You Need
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life.
2 Peter 1:3, NIV
Recommended Reading: Psalm 23
In 1943, Abraham Maslow, the son of Jewish immigrants to America, published his famous diagram illustrating the hierarchy of human needs. It was a triangle that explained our physical needs, our need for safety and love, and our need for esteem and for self-actualization. But Maslow was a humanist who neglected to mention our spiritual needs as described in the Bible.
Instead of devoting ourselves to trying to meet all our needs, the Bible tells us to devote ourselves to Him who can and will meet all our needs—physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and eternally. His divine power has given us all we need for a life pleasing to Him.
The patriarch Jacob said, “God has been gracious to me and I have all I need” (Genesis 33:11, NIV). Can you say the same thing today? Yes! With the psalmist we can all say in a moment of clarity, “Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!” (Psalm 23:1, TLB)
Be thankful for that today! Praise the Lord for His abundant provisions!
Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; sight, riches, healing of the mind; yea, all I need in Thee to find, O Lamb of God, I come, I come! – Charlotte Elliott
