How Much Do I Need God?

I need God as much today as I do in the midst of or potential of tragedy!

It’s so easy to be desperate for God on our bad days or in times of trouble but kind of forget about Him when things are going well.

You can’t read the stories in Scripture and see this, especially in the Old Testament. Time and time again the leaders of Israel and Judah would fall away from the Lord, and almost every time it was when things were going well.

I actually believe that God will often allow hard times to come because we are most likely to draw near to Him in the midst of them. I need to be reminded of this truth often so I made it one of my Declarations of Truth.

Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture. Truth statements are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH!

Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.

Truth = I need God as much today as I do in the midst of or potential of tragedy!

Say it! Believe it! Live it! I need God as much today as I do in the midst of or potential of tragedy!
