WANTS vs NEEDS



Do you ever know that what you want might not be what you need? And what you need is not what you want..
Most of the time when we pray.. we will pray..
‘Lord I want this.. And I want that.. But I really really want this.. And I sooo want that too… please Lord give me what I want…’ Then, where is the need?

If you ask me what I want.. I want one hundred thousands of things..
I want to own bank accounts with a big amount of money
I want a husband, a well-off one maybe (I heard some giggles there, hahaha), maybe a boyfriend for a start first lar.. haha
I want a happy home
I want to own a house, dun need to be big but can host guests
I want a new car
I want a camera phone
I want a laptop
I want to go to Europe, visit Germany specially (visit Oli)
I want to serve God without tears (impossible)
I want to die smiling.. not suffering (can ma God?)
and there are just tooo many to name it ..

I guess most of the time we got mixed up with needs and wants. That is exactly what my fren always says.. ‘hey..buy what you need not what you want..’ she always reminds me, before I even pay for the thing, I should ask myself, ‘do I really need it?’.. but... always.. all the time.. we see and feel like we need it.. actually we don’t really need it.. what a contradiction.. 太矛盾了.. haha

The more we seek God, the more we realize that God never intended us to be in such situation. He laid out what is more important..it is just us who failed to follow thru..and WORSE..when we cant get what we want.. we blame Him for not giving us..haiz..

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:25
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

Matthew 6: 34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 7:7-8
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

These are all promises of the Creator, the Saviour, the Provider, the One who loves us. so, what now? Claim these promises then. And worry no more. Help us Lord I pray. Amen.
