WE NEED YOU, LORD

July 25, 2020

The song written by Jonathan Butler voices the sentiment of my heart. In it, he first acknowledges the need of the masses, and then he personalizes the need. The song is not lengthy, nor is it hard to remember for it is composed of these two verses which are repeated several times:

We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now

We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now

We lift our hands and bow our knees and worship at Your Throne

We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now.

 

I need You Lord, I need You Lord, right now

I need You Lord, I need You Lord, right now

I lift my hands and bow my knees and worship at Your Throne

I need You Lord, I need You Lord, right now.

Right in here, I know this is what the world and I need. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve received all kinds of prayer requests from people for healing from Covid-19, cancer, mental health, and other related health issues, financial woes, and comfort for the grieving families over the loss of their love ones. Just hearing the request of hurting people and seeing the confusion plaguing this country brings tears to my eyes.

Covid-19 has us living with so many uncertainties. Decisions concerning the best course of action and plan for our lives are changing continually with the reception of new information. This has caused many to become depressed and suicidal, but for me, I am so glad I know God because He has been my resting place amid Covid-19.

Over the years, I purchased material things, things that I thought I needed, and some of which I packed away and never used. I’ve accumulated stuff, and now as I look over all of these things, I am trying to find ways to dispose of them because I don’t need them.

I have come to realize things are temporary, things are disposable, and things that I thought I needed, things that would make me happy, and my life complete have not. What I should have done was pray and ask God the One I needed for guidance before I purchased the stuff.

To conclude this blog, the point I am trying to say is in everything we need the Lord. We need Him in every area of our life, and this fact in our present world could not be more apparent. We need Him for guidance, support, peace, shelter, wisdom, knowledge, healing, answers, protection, deliverance, strength, prosperity, and salvation. (This is just a few areas of need, I am sure you can name many more).

So, let’s spread the word, and tell this faltering world they need the Lord; He is our answer and only hope.
