Our friend John Beaumont recently sent us these statements which are worth reading and then contemplating. As Christians, we can become so locked into our own need rather than seeing that He has made every provision for us right now to be amazingly free. I love this…we have no need but Him!

WHAT NEED?

ALL YOUR LOVE, LORD

I’ve scarcely dipped my feet in its boundless ocean  yet your love has filled, flooded and overflowed this life of mine.  I am beginning to realise that no one has ever been more loved than I am right now.

ALL YOUR GLORY LORD

Your glory is the expression of all your sweetest gentleness, unrivalled majesty, and limitless power.  Though dimly reflected in the starry universe and the matchless beauty of nature surrounding us, yet the splendour, majesty and glory of your intimate presence often causes me to be silently prostrate before you.

ALL YOUR GRACE, LORD

Grace flowing from your immense heart of love brings mercy, forgiveness, acceptance, salvation, life in your family, and abounding blessing.  I’ve merely touched the garment hem of your great grace, yet I stand in silent awe that I, the least of all, simply a God-filled nobody, am seated in the heavenly realms with Christ  by grace alone!

ALL YOUR POWER, LORD

Power to create, transform, renew and to accomplish your highest purposes.  You have created all that exists by the word of your power, yet you reside in humbly yielded trusting hearts, providing radiant, peace-filled, victorious living that is freely available to me, the least of all and most unworthy.

All my need, LORD?

I have no need but you.  Your care leaves me with no lack; your love keeps me deeply, fully satisfied; and the precious Holy Spirit?s indwelling Presence provides me with the infinite privilege of enjoying a foretaste of heaven here and now.

‘And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.’ [Philippians 4:19  NIV]
