God has made us to be individuals who have inner needs. Our shortcomings, desires, worries, insecurities, are all present for a purpose. They are unique because they were made by Him, and can only be met by Him. God wants our needs to draw us closer to a deeper relationship, and may I say, a dependence upon Him. He wants to be our Need-Filler, for everything. If God intended for us to be filled somewhere else, by someone else, then we wouldn’t need Him. The Lord uses circumstances in our lives and positive people to show us that He cares about us. Ultimately, only God can satisfy all of the needs of our heart.
The Bible says…”The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.” Isaiah 58:11
We have been created with three God-given needs. These essential inner needs are:
To Be Loved- to know that someone loves you unconditionally.
To Matter- to know that our lives have meaning and purpose.
To Be Secure- to feel accepted, safe and that you belong.
God has already provided a way for us and has taken care of our ultimate needs. He says:
You Are Loved- “I have loved you with an everlasting love: I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
You Matter- “For I know the plans I have for you, ‘declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
You Are Safe- “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you, He will never leave you, nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
God makes His plans clear to us:
“My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.”
He is our Ultimate Need Filler. He wants to put all your broken pieces back together. Hug Him today. He is waiting for you.
