You don’t realize how much you need God until you don’t have Him in your life!
Do you believe this statement is true?
We all have stepped away from God at some point in our lives. No matter if we have done it once or several times, we all know what it feels like to be without God.
We may have walked away from God because of a bad situation. We may have become distant, because life is good, and we think we don’t need Him anymore. There are many reasons why we walk away from Christ. I know I am guilty of stepping away from God. I remember once I was so consumed with life issues that I walked away from God’s presence for a short period of time. I was in a confused state of mind and decided to do life without God.
I learned something about myself during the season of darkness and confusion. I need God in every moment of my life. The truth is, you do too! God wants the good, the bad, and the ugly in all of us. In the bad times, we need to press into God more and soak in His presence. In the good times, we need to thank God for everything He has done and is doing in our lives. God is a part of every season we walk through in life. We cannot do life without God in it, no matter how hard we try to run away from Him!
The Bible is full of encouraging Scripture. The Word tells us that God helps us in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 says to “come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” When we come to God with our problems, He gives us grace to meet our needs. Philippians 4:19 tells us God cares about us and supplies our every need.
We are conquerors through Christ. In 1 John 5:4, it declares that “everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” Our needs are met by God whether He is helping us through a difficult time or celebrating a victory in our lives. He is always there cheering us on to bigger and better things!
When we are on our knees, we are victors in Christ!
When we are seeking God’s presence over our lives, we will be conquerors through Christ!
To sum up this blog, we need Jesus every second, every minute, every hour, every day for the rest of our lives! We simply need God to be our everything!
