All I need is God

While I was studying 1 Peter 5, verses 6-7 and 13-14 stood out:

6 -7So be content with who you are, and don't put on airs. God's strong hand is on you; he'll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.

13 -14The church in exile here with me—but not for a moment forgotten by God—wants to be remembered to you. Mark, who is like a son to me, says hello. Give holy embraces all around! Peace to you—to all who walk in Christ's ways (The Message).

It made me realize I may be on a fruitless journey when I choose to be independent of God. I could have less frustrations, make better decisions, fret less and prosper if I could hand myself over to God and trust him to know what to do with my life.

The Church in exile was not for one moment forgotten by God.

As I studied and reflected, I turned to God and said, "All I need is You! In you I have everything. If I can solely rely on you, all things will fall into place..."

Then I sensed God said, "I know. And I don't need to be convinced. However, are you convinced that all you need is me?"

Do you want to know the truth?

I did not answer. I realized it was not enough to say it but my thoughts, attitude and actions should imply it. It got me thinking and I am still churning it. I know that the more I meditate on it and have it engraved in me, every atom in me will be convinced that all I need is God and it will reflect in my attitude.

Are you convinced that all you need is God or do you have other life lines?
