Lord I Need You
C.S. Lewis talked about a type of love that you will never grow out of. It’s called “need love.”
It’s basically the love you have for God that comes out of your continual need for Him. This may be a little uncomfortable for most people to hear, because our culture teaches us to be self reliant, self sufficient, and self determining. But, the truth is –We need God. I have found so much reassurance and so much hope in knowing that every hour of every moment, when I need God, He is ready to meet my needs. He will never leave more or forsake me –That, is something worth singing about.
When you hear this song, my prayer is that you’re so hit between the eyes with your need for God and His love that you also go to Him with your joy. And in that place of joy you still say, “Lord, I need You”—not just in your brokenness and darkest times.
The devotional challenge in this song is to think about whether you believe every word when you sing along. Do you acknowledge that you need God every hour? Do you recognize that God wants us to lean into Him? Allow the Truth to sink into your hearts today.
