He doesn’t need you; you need Him.
Interesting to think about this statement. In human relationships, when we need someone who doesn’t need us, the balance is off. We can feel the tension, and it can be disruptive in a relationship.
But in our relationship with God, for our greatest joy the need balance should be tilted all the way. We do need Him. We absolutely need Him. When we don’t acknowledge our need of Him, we do not desperately seek Him (Ps. 42:2, Ps. 63:1). Denying our need prevents us from being truly satisfied.
David reflects this need in Psalm 70:5, “But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay!” Without need, why a deliverer? David was stating his need and asking for his Lord.
Jesus offers that which satisfies.
“Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)
“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
The invitation is there. Are you seeking and finding, drinking deep from the One who satisfies eternally? Are you letting your need drive you to Him?
We can seek Him in prayer consistently throughout the day.
We can see Him in His Word as He speaks truth to us.
We can feast on Him as we meditate on the word preached or taught or simply shared by a friend.
