Dear Jesus

I have designed you to need Me moment by moment. As your awareness of your neediness increases, so does your realization of My abundant sufficiency.

Dear Jesus, 

The longer I live, the more aware I become of my neediness. Many people—as they gain life experience—seem to become increasingly confident about the accuracy of their opinions. I, on the other hand, am increasingly aware that my understanding is like the tip of an iceberg: What I don’t comprehend is so much greater than what I actually understand. This is just one of many areas where my neediness has become more apparent to me.

Beloved, recognizing the limits of your understanding is good, because it can enhance your relationship with Me. You need Me continually ~ not only for daily bread and blessings, but also for the myriad decisions you must make each day. If you had greater confidence in your knowledge and opinions, you might feel more comfortable. But walking close to Me on the path of Life is far more important than comfort. Remember that the road leading to Life is a narrow one, and only a few find it. So don’t expect your journey along this path to be easy. Awareness of your neediness helps you receive many blessings from Me. As you come to Me with your vast insufficiency, I draw near you with My infinite sufficiency. My abundant supply and your needy condition fit together perfectly ~ keeping you intimately connected to Me. The more consistently you rely on Me, the better your life will be. Not only will I meet all your needs through My glorious riches, I will also delight you with the Joy of My Presence. This is the way I want you to live: in joyful dependence on Me!

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

~ Philippians 4:19

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

~ Matthew 7:13–14

Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight.

~ Psalm 43:4
