All Our Needs
by Kathleen Whitten
All of us have circumstances and situations in our lives that create unfulfilled needs. A single person might lack a true companion, a married person would perhaps yearn for someone who will really listen, a child could crave the attention of both a loving father and mother, a widow could desire the protection and help of a partner, and an imprisoned person would wish for the joy of freedom.
If you have an unfulfilled need in your life right now, then this is incredible news for you: God promises to fulfill all of your needs.
Psalm 68:5-6a: “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His Holy Dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, He leads forth the prisoners with singing...”
You see, God will always fulfill the needs, the holes, the gaping, hurting, empty places in our lives if we trust Him to do so. As a matter of fact, Ephesians 3:20 tells us that if we trust God then He will do “exceedingly, abundantly above all we can hope or ask or think.” Many times I have been very thankful God fulfilled a need in my life in His ways and His timing, because His ways and timing are always better than my ways. (Isaiah 55:9)
So what must we do in order for God to fulfill a need in our lives?
First we must ask Him to fulfill that need. You see many people would rather focus on what they do not have than actually pray to God to give them what they need.
Second, we must trust God (His timing and His ways) and He will lead us down the right road and straighten out our lives. Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all of your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
Thirdly, we need to seek God. It is tempting to seek to fulfill our unmet needs before we seek God, but this simple scripture will make all the difference in our lives: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you!” (Matthew 6:33)
