My Jesus Calling started this way for today: Your needs . . .
and so I asked what are my needs? Really what are my needs? What is it that I just imperatively have to have? And so I thought about it. I came up with one imperative need. I am not negating other needs, I mean the kind of needs that without I will not be long for this world. Like.
Water. Now I like me some water! for drinking, for showering, for cleaning – – – Yep! water is REAL important to me.
Food. I like food. And there are not many days I have gone without it and even when I did – well, honestly that was by choice.
Clothing. Yeah. That’s pretty much a necessity! 🙂
Shelter from the elements. We won’t die quickly, normally, without some shelter from wind, rain, snow, cold and heat but death will come in a while. So I’d say this is high on the need list.
My beloved hubby says LOVE is the one thing we need. And I said it is pretty important but we won’t die right away without it and he said well, we won’t live well. I smiled because he is right.
So what is it? What is this all important need?
In my humble opinion: Air/oxygen! Without it that heart is gonna stop pumping, right?
Interesting, isn’t it that we were created with that one imperative, ultimate, got to have it need?
Genesis 1 (KJV) 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
See that word Spirit? Spirit of God – Holy Spirit of God.
Do you know what that word in Hebrew is and what it means?
How smart is GOD!
With these natural lives we have been given we must have breath – air or we die. Air, breath. It is an ultimate need!
And in the supernatural; well, in the spiritual realm without AIR – the Holy Spirit of GOD, we are dead already! And I do mean grave yard dead!
5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), Ephesians 2
