Conntecting the Dots

What is Your Need Today?

I’m currently working on a new writing project, the first of a three-book series about about the names of God. In full disclosure, I look at the scope of this project and fearful thoughts enter my mind. The biggest fear, at this time, involves meeting the August 31 deadline.


Meeting that deadline would be no problem if I could sit at my desk and write full-time six days a week, but that’s never going to happen. Two new grandchildren are due within the next six weeks, and I want to be available to help when called on. I’ll travel later this month for a speaking engagement, and then I’ll travel to Florida to attend the National Religious Broadcaster’s convention in May.


I have to refuse to entertain fearful thoughts or they will paralyze me. Instead, I turn to prayer: “Father, You know what’s necessary for me to write this manuscript. Please provide creativity, the ability to hear the Holy Spirit’s voice, and the ability to manage time wisely so I can do this job while balancing it with other aspects of my life.”


God will prove faithful, of this I am sure. After all, who’s better able to meet our needs than the God of the universe?

Acts 17:24-25 says, “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in manmade temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need.”


God has no needs. He’s complete and lacks nothing. He’s the source of everything that exists both seen and unseen. Therefore, He’s sufficient and fully able to satisfy every need we have. 


Need wisdom? He’s got it covered—see James 1:5.


Need joy? Psalm 16:11.


Need peace? John 14:27.


Need provision? Matthew 6:31-33.


Need forgiveness? 1 John 1:9.


Need hope? Psalm 39:7.


Need guidance? Isaiah 30:21.


Need rest? Matthew 11:28-30.


Need courage? Deuteronomy 31:6.


I’m trusting the God who lacks nothing to supply my needs with regards to writing my next book. For what needs are you trusting Him today? Pick one from the list above (or come up with your own) and write it in the comments section. I’ll pray for you, my friend.

    I need relief from the grief of losing my precious husband. I miss him so much. God is sooooo good to me. I want to stop crying.

      Hi Norma. My heart hurts for you and your loss. “Father, please wrap Norma in Your loving arms and comfort her through this time of grief. Send her daily, tangible evidences of Your love for her. May she discover a joy and peace she’s never known as You walk this journey with her. We ask this in the power of Jesus’ name, amen.”

    I need freedom from narcissistic psychological and spiritual and spiritual abuse. Thank you for praying for me. I’m struggling terribly.

    • Grace Fox

      Hi Erica.

      I’m so sorry to hear that you’re struggling in this way. “Father, You know every detail about Erica’s situation. Just as You saw Hagar in the wilderness, so You see Erica in her difficult circumstances. Meet her in that place, and come to her rescue. Send her the encouragement, wisdom, and comfort she needs. Lead her to a healthy place for Your name’s sake, Lord. We’re trusting You to create for her a place where she can flourish. We ask these things in Jesus’ name, amen.”

      Know you are loved,
