Our Greatest Need

Not long ago I visited the dean of a great American university. We looked out the window of his office and watched hundreds of students walking to their classes. I asked the dean, “What is the greatest problem at this university?” He thought a moment and answered, “Emptiness.” So many people today are bored, lonely, searching for something. You can see it in their faces.

One girl home from college told her wealthy father, “Father, I want something but I don’t know what it is.” That’s true of many people; we want something to meet the deepest problems of our lives, but we haven’t found it. David said, “I have found it. I shall not want.” The Apostle Paul expressed it, “I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.”

You don’t have to give up on life, to throw up your hands and cry, “It’s no use.” . . . You can have God’s peace, God’s joy, God’s happiness, God’s security; and yours can become the most thrilling life in the world.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, You quench the thirst and longing of my soul. Praise Your blessed name.

    Our Souls in constant communication with the Holy Spirit is true peace and happiness.. Without this communication our frail, sin filled human mind is anxiously searching for something to fill the void in our lives.

    I discovered how when I went through a life challenging tradgedy.

    By reading the Bible…Cover to Cover. It tools 3 years and two months. I soaked in His word, with no time constraints.

    I accepted Christ as 4, been and facilitated many Bible Studies.

    As God brought me, not to my knees, but face down on my bedroom floor, with no place to go, but to Him.

    We are to be thankful in all things.
