Needy People!

Who is needy?

People don’t like being needy or being considered needy. Many shy away from those they think are needy.

As we reflect on this idea of needy people, it is essential to determine who is needy. So, here are my thoughts on the matter.

I am needy! You are needy! All of humanity is needy! Every time you look in the mirror, you see a needy person.

Ugh! Seriously? Absolutely. Let me explain.

God is drawn to needy people!

God, in His omnipotence, created each of us and placed within each of us talents, capabilities, strengths, competencies, and skills. Then, to complete His ‘very good’ creation, He added a variety of needs.

Be thankful for the blessing of being needy. Without needs, we would become self-sufficient in our mind. Without needs, we would not need help from anybody, including God. At least, that would be the way we would operate. In reality, many behave that way today, and the result is disastrous.

God, in His omniscience, created us to be needy. He desires us to recognize the fact we have needs. Rather than hide them, ignore them, or try to meet them ourselves, He wants us to turn to Him to meet our needs.

God is a gentleman. He will not force us to allow Him to meet our needs. It is always a choice. Some of our needs may go unmet, or get met but not in a pleasing way to God.

When it comes to meeting our needs, there are only two directions we can turn. We either turn to God, or we turn away from God. When we turn to God, there is a fear of losing control and being left alone.

God, in His omnipresence, promised He would never leave or forsake us. He will not abandon us. We can always trust Him. Memorize Proverbs 3:5-6. God is faithful. He shall supply all our needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4:19). My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:2).
