All Our Needs

Psalms 42:1 1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. (NIV)

This Psalmist was very wise.  He was aware that any emptiness, depression, anxiety or worry he experienced was a warning sign he needed to replenish his spirit with the infilling only God can give.  So many of us turn to other sources first to solve our emotions from various trials we face.  They might help momentarily but their help quickly dissipates.  When God made man, He made a place in man’s spirit that can only be filled with Him.  The only way we can fill it with Him is through His Word, His Son, Jesus Christ.  When we take Jesus into our hearts, minds and lives, He sends His Holy Spirit to dwell in us with our spirit.  It is this Holy Spirit Who will lift us up from any pit we might have stumbled into.  So, let’s join with the psalmist and turn to God through His Holy Spirit to fill all our needs, physical, spiritual, mental and emotional.  He is faithful.  Jesus promised He would fill all our needs.  We only need to place our hope and trust in Him.
