This morning, as I looked at all the prayer needs on my list and was asking God to meet every need, I asked Him what was the greatest need. I’ve got names listed for salvation, healing, and for various other needs. I wanted to know which ones God saw as greater than some of the others. Which ones were my perceived needs and which ones were needs God saw as important. His answer was this, “The greatest need is for you all to totally commit and submit to Me.”
I was then reminded of the verse: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7“. Peter was telling us to toss all our needs over to Jesus and He’d take care of them because He loves us. And, going back to what the Lord told me that morning, if we’ll not focus on those needs and totally commit and submit to Him, they’ll all be taken care of anyway! “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33“. So what is the greatest need in our lives? To focus entirely on Jesus and living a Christ-like life and we’ll find those needs just sort of fade away. Hey, we might even find ourselves walking on water! Matthew 14:29.
