“Incline Thine ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be Thou to me a rock of strength, a stronghold to save me.” Psalm 31:2
I was recently approached to see if the church could help a family that has a need financially. After getting all the specifics and the request for the immediate need; I let them know that we would help as much as we could. Then, I set that aside and told them who could meet their REAL NEED. Don’t get me wrong, I validated this financial need. But, I didn’t skirt around the fact that the financial need is temporary and but their spiritual need is eternal.
What need are you pursuing today? The verse above is a great reminder that God is able to save and has the strength to rescue us in our time of need.
Let’s not forget that the things “which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Cor 4:18).
We all have various needs that need to be met throughout the day. There is only One who can meet the REAL NEED which lasts for eternity along with every other need we have; His name is Jesus!
My encouragement for us this week: Find two people to tell this week about the One who can give us strength for this life and keep us safe for the next!
Prayer for Strength:
Lord, thank you for being my Rock! Please give me strength to live for You today. You are my place of safety; please help me stay in You. Please help me be a light for You by telling others about the Hope that is found in You. Thank You, Jesus, for dying on the cross for my sins. I love you!
