"Needs And More Needs"

"Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" Jeremiah 32:27

Before I went to bed last night I was praying for various needs. I almost didn't know where to start. Each day I receive more and more prayer requests and become more aware of needs in individual lives. The needs are so numerous and great. Everyone has some sort of need. Some are going through grief because of the passing of a loved one. Some are having a problem in their relationships. Some are sick. Some have financial needs. Others need guidance in a decision they have to make. Then there are those who need to know Jesus as Savior and Lord. And the prayer list goes on and on. In short, we are a needy people and the needs just seem to keep multiplying. It would be easy to pray for hours upon hours and still have not adequately prayed for them all.

My next thought in prayer was that of thankfulness and encouragement as I remembered that it doesn't matter how great the needs or how many needs, God is big enough to handle them all! He does not get overwhelmed by all the needs. He doesn't take a step back and say, "There are just too many!" He doesn't get anxious as they come flooding in before His throne of grace. He doesn't wonder what to do about the amount or size of the needs. They don't become more than He can handle.

Keep carrying your needs before Him. Keep lifting them all up to Him. Don't let the size of the need or the amount of needs stop you. There is nothing and no amount too big, too hard or too difficult for Him to handle.

Have a great day. Take your needs to the Lord, He is not overwhelmed by them.
