We often live in this weird balance between knowing God can fill all our needs and trying to fill them with everything but God. What we know in our minds and what we do with our actions just don’t connect. Struggle and frustration are often the results.
I most often try to fill my needs with myself. I fall into the trap that I can do it, figure it out, make it happen on my own. After failing I usually realize that only God can do it. He can use me, but He is the source. I need to first learn to turn to Him all of the time instead of just some of the time.
Our struggles can be emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, occupational or combinations of these and more. There is also a vast array of ways to try and fill our needs but really only one place we should start.
In verse 8 David writes, “Trust in Him at all times, O people: pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.” Our refuge is strong and loving and completely worthy of our trust, for He never fails.
