TAKE YOUR NEEDS TO JESUS - August 30, 2021 by Max Lucado

Mike: Notice that Max writes with special emphasis on "all your needs". God does not limit us to just some needs but Philippians says EVERYTHING. Nothing about us is  inconsequential to God. Notice Philippians also tells us to be thankful to Him. He loves us like no one else! Try Him!

Max: Jesus was attending a wedding with the disciples and his mother, Mary, when she approached him with a seemingly irrelevant problem. “‘They have no more wine,’ she told him” (John 2:3). Mary presented the problem, Jesus commanded a solution, and the wineless wedding was suddenly wine flush. And we are left with this message: our diminishing supplies, no matter how insignificant, matter to heaven.

Listen, if Jesus was willing to use divine clout to solve a social faux pas, how much more would he be willing to intervene on the weightier matters of life? He wants you to know that you can take your needs—all your needs—to him. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).
