We all have a Need!

God created us with every need that we have: physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and social. Infants have these basic needs present immediately after arrival. They are selfish by nature to make sure of their survival.

Our physical state depends on our selfish demands. Later on, maturity is determined on the emotional, spiritual and mental needs that must be met. One can continue to live a life purely selfish and void of spiritual need. Although many continue to be selfish and spiritually absent, they do unconsciously search for something to fill the void.

Mankind has for generations tried filling the spiritual void with many different things: alcohol, drugs, affection, money, attention, wealth, education, family, and keeping secrets. Most the things that become addictions are tried to fill the void.

Because we have a physical need for water doesn’t make us weak and psychologically helpless. We are made to need things. Our spirit is made by God to need Him. God makes Himself known to those who ask. Until we ask, we are spiritually closed or blind to the truth. David understood the spiritual need when he wrote Psalm 63, “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water”.

The Bible makes comparison to basic physical needs to our spiritual needs. Jesus declares, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never to hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35).

Go ahead and admit you need something! We all do! We need water, food, shelter, love and protection and yes, we need God to make our lives complete!
