Bible verses about needing God
We always hear people say that Jesus is all we need, but the thing is, He’s not just all we need. Jesus is all we have. Jesus gives a purpose for life. Without Him there is no reality and no meaning. Everything is about Christ. Without Christ we are dead.
Our next breath comes from Christ. Our next meal comes from Christ.
We are nothing without Christ and we can do nothing without Him. We couldn’t save ourselves and we never even wanted to.
We were dead in sin when Christ died for us and paid the price for us in full.
He is our only claim to Heaven. He is all we have. Because of Him we can know God. Because of Him we can enjoy God.
Because of Him we can pray to God. When you are going through trials you might think I need the Lord, but you must recognize that all you have is the Lord. Don’t only seek Him in hardships, always seek Him. Do all things for the glory of God.
Jesus Christ who was perfect, was crushed to pay your debts because He loves you. He is the only way sinners can have a relationship with a Holy God.
Don’t you see the true significance of Him dying on the cross for you? You were bought by a price. If God gave you a Savior when you were dead in your trespasses, what won’t He give you and what can’t He give you. Why doubt? God came through before and He’ll come through again.
God said He will always be there for you in hard times. Have faith that He will always provide for you. Seek Him through continuous prayer not just when you have bad days, but every day of your life. Meditate on His Word and believe in His promises.
Trust in Him with all your heart. He loves you and already knows what you’re going to ask before you ask Him. Pour your heart out to Him, because all you have is Him.

He doesn’t live in shrines made by human hands, and he isn’t served by people as if he needed anything. He himself gives everyone life, breath, and everything else. From one man he made every nation of humanity to live all over the earth, fixing the seasons of the year and the national boundaries within which they live, so that they might look for God, somehow reach for him, and find him. Of course, he is never far from any one of us.”
