Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, everyone is searching for something to fill that emptiness inside. The void. The longing in their spirit only God can satisfy. We live in a world poor in spirit. We are surrounded by spiritual bankruptcy- and it seeps into our lives.
Beth and I are going through the Beatitudes – and this week we’re looking at verse Matthew 5:3 He says, “God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”(NLT)
I love this particular translation because it’s a great definition of what it truly means to be poor in spirit. Poor in spirit is a deficit of the eternal. The only solution is to recognize your need for Him.
Maybe you’re like me and feel a bit of that deficit occasionally. But my comfort is this: I know I need Him with every fiber of my being and because I acknowledge that and choose Him, He’s got me covered.
I love this song. I hope it touches you, too!
