My Need for God!

What is the depth of my need for God today?

I have been thinking about this today. The first thing I thought about was, do I have a deep need for God today because of what is going on or do I have a deep need for God in spite of what is going on?

We use the circumstances of our lives to drive the depth of our need for God, but is should not be the reason for our need for God. We should not have a need for God because of what’s going on but because of who He is and who we are. He is Perfect and we are not. He is peace when the world is in chaos.

It is when the noise caused by the things going on around is so great that we have to stop and quiet ourselves and realize how much we need the Lord in our lives. I am reminded of the familiar verse in Psalm 46:

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”

The Psalm tells us to “Be still” which means it is something we have to choose to do. But what we can find the most peace and comfort in is the promise that comes in the verse just following:

Psalm 46:11 “The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah”

This is yet another time that the Lord has promised to be with us and be our refuge! Wherever you are today, God is with you. You can take refuge is Him and be still and know that HE IS GOD!
