What do you need… What chang are you yearning to bring that turn around in your life?
I was listening to no limbs, no hands nor legs preacher from Australia called Nick Vujicic.
I wasn’t grateful because I had no legs and hands but who would be happy without legs and hands? the question is, are those the basic requisite of happiness? he asked. some of us have legs, hands and even all it takes to be happy but still not happy.
Nick messages touched my heart and inner core because I am always complaining about a lot of things I didn’t have but still, people see me and wish they were like me.
Beloved, mostly we forget who we are as people of this world created by God with all the good things in it for our own good. The truth of the matter is, only faith brings us what we need.
Romans 12:3 says, “For, by the grace given to me, I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. “measure of faith” is presented as “the faith God has distributed to each of you” in the New International Version and “the faith God has given us. So am still battling with this question. What do you need.?
To share a little testimony with you, I run away from home to the city, I have struggled through a lot of maltreatment, bullying, and abuse.
Those struggles have been my point of faith to wake and still move believing that.,when I needed a place to stay he provided… When I need education, he sends me strangers to see that emptiness met.
Beloved, there is a lot we are still asking for but not answered because we have not been grateful enough with what we have been given. What do you need? I have a lot of need, you have a lot of needs, I need a lot of things but ask how enough have you used what you have been given.?
We are always in need of things, from needing a university certificate to getting work to getting an extravagant salary, then you one-day meet your Ceo and ask yourself, is this the man who is stressing my life? I need to be free from this stress.
I remember always saying I need a studio to be better my blogging career. Oh, I will record a lot of videos but I bearly go there once a week. You have your own struggles and needs but the question is, do you need those you need to be more fruitful, thankful, or happy?
Friends, trust me that solved needs will definitely yield another need so, at the end of the day, we always need something because we are always in need.
Nick is an Australian evangelist with no legs and hands, he lives in the doubtful excuses of not having legs, hands at age eight, he fought with questions like how can I marry, have kids without hands and how am I going to carry my kids when they cry. He prayed for hands and legs at age 8 and till today, that prayer has never been answered, but can you imagine if God had answered his needs? it would have been a miracle if he had gotten the legs and hands… Who would have believed his miracles except for his close family and possibly appear on TV ones?
He prayed but God didn’t give him legs and hands but rather made him the joy of his testimony to preach the word of God across over 40 countries and won over five thousand souls for christ.
The rich approach the limbless for help even with their money. Beloved, what at all do you need? Having legs, hands, dream job, big financial stability does not bring you happiness. As the Bible says, Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! … Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I have no clue about what you need at these moments but I want to assure you that what you have now that that seems useless might take you places if only you beyond limitation.
1 Corinthians 2:9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [[a]who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].
Be happy, take a leap of faith with the little you have. Leave the rest of the need to God and focus on the little you have because in most cases we don’t even appreciate what we get when we need them and still pray for more.
But the bible says in Philippines 4:I 1:13. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
What do you need? Get grib of waiting for what you think you need and focus on what you have, believe it, and run with it.
I remember when I got my nanny job, I first dispose of myself with it why am I going to stay in someone’s house and take care of kids that I knew I wasn’t patient with, friends thought me out of it, the life I envisage for was not to be a nanny but one thing that made me blind all this was what I was seeing beyond being just a nanny. I was just curious to see what is beyond just being a house girl or a nanny and that was my go-to inspiration.
I have gotten $1,000 within just 6 weeks just coordinating, got the privilege to travel all over the regions in Ghana, and soon all over the world, I have come across a lot of amazing and influential people that my long time need of 9/5 job couldn’t have. I have been on TV and radio as a guest sharing my experience and opinion, I have learned to be tolerant, patient had my certificate and diploma while being a nanny and many more.
The question is what do you need? Sometimes what we need as human is not what God want us to have. I tried nursing school application for 11 times, got lost in what I wanted to do with my life, and depressed along the line. So my beloved, take a leap of faith and make good use of what you have and leave God to purposely add you what you really need and trust me on What God is about doing, eyes have my seen, ears have not heard either has it enters into the heart of men what God is about doing in your life.
Lastly, I put it t you! WHAT DO YOU NEED?
