What do we truly Need?

Heavenly Father I praise You for today. I praise You for allowing me to have the time off to go to the funeral with Doreen. I praise You for giving me the ability to take command of the morning. I praise You for allowing me to see Jeff, Chris, Beth Ann, Ann, Brian, and Beth. I praise You for the fellowship and the service.

Holy Spirit I come to You and claim Your promise written in: Philippians 4:19—But my God shall supply your every need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I realize that it is not my desires, wants, or hopes but my needs. My Creator knows what I need for he made me and keeps track of me all my life.

Holy Spirit help me to become like Paul and learn to be content with what I have. Help me continue to strive to get out of debt and tithe to You and learn to give gifts. I need to learn to be the one who sows good things so I reap good things. I need to learn the value of friendship, the love of my wife, love of my children and grandchildren. I need to see life for what is important. I need to understand that my true needs are You in my life, a purpose to fulfill, people to share the journey with, and a hunger for righteousness. All other things are just that, things. Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given to me all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of God who has called me to His glory and excellence, by which He has given to me exceedingly great and precious promises so that through these things I might become a partaker of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. For this reason, help me to make every effort to add virtue to my faith; and to my virtue, knowledge, and to my knowledge, self-control; and to my self-control, patient endurance; and to my patient endurance, godliness; and to my godliness, brotherly kindness; and to my brotherly kindness love. For if all of these reside in me and abound, they will ensure that I will neither be useless nor unfruitful in the knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord. Help me diligently make my calling and election sure so that when I add all of these areas into my life I will not stumble and will be able to enter into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which will be abundantly provided for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 2 Peter 1:3-11 MEV version
