All Of Our Needs

A friend of mine has an awesome testimony of how God brought her out of a miry pit. I know she has worked on writing her story and I am hoping that one day it will be published. And if it is - I will probably try to do a give away with the book.

While we were driving to a Women's Retreat several years ago, my friend shared her story with me. She also shared how Psalms was her favorite book of the Bible. And that when she first came to God she really felt comforted by reading the Psalms.

So the last couple of weeks when I was beginning to feel totally overwhelmed with life, I decided that I would begin to read through the book of Psalms.

As I began to read I, too, was comforted by the many reminders that God is my shield, rock, fortress, comfort, refuge, and strength and so much more. Another reason why I love the Psalms is the fact that there is so much honesty in this book. No pretense that everything is wonderful and great. A real relationship with God is shown through the honesty. God knows where we have been, where we are and where we are going. We can share our feelings with Him - it does not change the way that He feels about us. He still loves us so very much.

As I have been reading the Psalms, I have been reminded of our need to learn to totally depend on God for all of our needs. He is willing and waiting. I am so thankful.

"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

"God does not dispense strength and encouragement like a druggist fills your prescription. The Lord doesn't promise to give us something to take so we can handle our weary moments. He promises is Himself. That is all. And that is enough. " Charles W. Swindoll - Encourage Me
