"If I have you and nothing else, I have everything." Could you honestly sing these words from this newer worship song by Vertical Worship?
Actually, maybe you're not even sure who the "you" is referring to in the song. It's Jesus. So, imagine having a relationship that makes everything or everyone else in life appear superfluous. Or, imagine having a relationship that could realistically meet all your emotional and spiritual and intellectual needs.
It doesn't seem possible, does it?
I mean think about it, we have someone who cuts our hair but it's not the same person that cleans our gutters. We call an expert to do our taxes but we send our dog to a groomer. We hang out with one friend because she make us laugh but we go to coffee with a different friend that listens when we cry. There doesn't seem to be anyone on this earth that is able to meet every single need that arises.
So how could it be that knowing Jesus could give me everything that I've ever needed?
It's because Jesus is infinitely more capable of understanding you than a mere human being. Jesus knows everything about you. He loves you. He understands you. He knows what makes you tick. He truly knows who you are and what you need.
Cry and he knows what will wipe away your tears. Laugh, and he'll laugh with you. Think and he'll interject a brilliant thought. Be confused, and he'll straighten your path. He's everything. He's simply and incredibly everything you'll ever need.
Plus, he's invested so much in you already. Creation. The Cross. The Resurrection. The Bible. Your very life.
So, take a first step INTO THE DEPTHS of this intimate relationship with Jesus. Trust, that He is everything you need. Trust Him in that.
You Are Loved!
