    Allow God to Meet Your Needs

    Monday, March 16, 2015

    As we are moving right along into 2015, I pray you are staying on track with your quiet time with the Lord and allowing Him to control your life. As pastors’ wives, things can get so hectic that it seems the one thing that gets pushed off the plate is our time with the Lord. Don’t allow that to happen; be determined to keep that a priority this year. Life will be so much better if you do!

    I know when we allow our spiritual life to get out of balance everything appears to be so much bigger and worse than it really is. I would like to share one of my devotions from several months ago that I pray will speak to your heart.

    “Your needs and My riches are a perfect fit. I never meant for you to be self-sufficient. Instead, I designed you to need Me not only for daily bread, but also for fulfillment of deep yearnings. I carefully crafted your longings and feelings of incompleteness, to point you to Me. Therefore, do not try to bury or deny these feelings. Beware also of trying to pacify these longings with lesser gods: people, possessions, power.

    Come to Me in all your neediness, with defenses down and with desire to be blessed. As you spend time in My Presence, your deepest longings are fulfilled. Rejoice in your neediness, which enables you to find intimate completion in Me.

    Whatever you may be going through right now, let Him meet your need!

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
