In order to live and remain as a species, it is said that humans have five basic needs; air, food, water, sleep, and sex. The reality is that God provides all of that. He is faithful and has promised to meet all of our needs. He has given us all of those things. We also have needs such as clothing and shelter and love. He provides those too. On top of our basic needs, different individuals have different needs such as medical care, respite care, and so on. Regardless of our needs, our God has promised to provide ALL of our needs. Phillippians 4:19 "My God shall supply ALL your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
Jesus said that we are more valuable than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31 "Fear not, therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows." and again in Luke:12:6-7 "Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why even the hairs of your head are all numbered." That is the Words of our Lord and God who loves us more than we can comprehend and has promised to provide for our needs. Not some of our needs, ALL of our needs.
Truly, Jesus is all that we need. We need to fill every breath of our life with Him, for He gives us our breath. In Him is all of life. Our death is imminent, you will die, physically. Your body will give up the ghost, just as Jesus did. But if you believe in Jesus, that He is THE way, THE truth, and THE LIFE, you have new, eternal life. In Him, through Him, because of HIM we have the promise of life everlasting and shall never die. And nothing can separate us from Him. I would rather be spiritually alive for all eternity with our Lord, and physically dead, than to be spiritually dead and physically alive. Because in the end, if you live for Jesus you will be both, spiritually and physically alive. For all believers, our bodies will be resurrected, transformed, glorified and reunited. It's a win win! Hallelujah!
I am speaking to everyone who reads this: YOU NEED JESUS! More than air, water, food, etc, you need Him. He is your ONLY necessity. Once you choose Jesus, He provides EVERYTHING else, no matter how big or small. Come out of the world, which will pass away, choose Jesus and allow God's Holy Spirit to live in you and through you. The spirit is real, it is eternal. The physical is a short lived gift that will pass away. The beginning of life is when you choose Jesus.
If I have to choose between air to breath and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between water and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between food and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between shelter and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between life and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between death and Jesus - I choose Jesus
If I have to choose between anything and Jesus - I choose Jesus .... and Jesus chose me, and died for me, that I might live and live abundantly, wanting for nothing, but Him. Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my Shepherd, I SHALL NOT WANT." Because He loves and cares for me and my every need.
Thank You Jesus!
