Wants and needs – getting settled in somewhere new is hard. I just so dislike moving. These last two weeks have been extremely hectic. But God doesn’t miss an opportunity to teach us valuable lessons. The lesson that I have experienced personally this week was the difference between wants and needs. Even in relationships, wants and needs occur. There are things when I look around and I say “I need this or I need that”, however, I have learned that is just not true. We do that with people as well. We tend to believe that we need him or we need her, but nope, that is just not true. We have one need in this life and that need is Jesus, everything else is a want. We may want this man or that woman but in reality, you don’t NEED them. When we have Jesus in our life as our Lord and Savior, we have everything we need.
In Matthew 6:33 ” But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.” (Nas)
This includes people and provisions. God knows what you have need of before you even ask. So in reality, we have only one need. That need is Jesus.
