Man sure does have a lot of needs. A simple start to the list would be air, water, food, sleep, clothes, heat, family, love, affection, freedom, money, relationships, shelter, health, purpose, stability, order, protection, identity, and hope. Woman needs all of those plus makeup, hairspray, jewelry, and that perfect little black dress, right? All joking aside, no matter how you look at it, we all live in a world where we need certain things in order to survive and certain other things in order to thrive. Although all of those things listed above are certainly needed in life, I believe man’s greatest need to be PEACE.
Each and every one of our lives has a destiny. Although we have a wonderful eternal promise that is shown to us all throughout the New Testament (John 3:16 and 1 John 2:25, for example), right now I’m talking about something different. Much like Paul, we should all be striving to live a life where at the end, we can look back and say that we fought a good fight, that we have finished our course, and have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7). Today, I want to talk about that COURSE. You have a course that your life can and should take that fully reveals the heart of your heavenly Father. This should be a path of victory that demonstrates His love, goodness, and provision in each and every area of your life!
