Lord, I Need You

In order to become a Christ-follower, we all must come to a place where we recognize our deep need for God.  But it doesn’t stop there.  Throughout our Christian journey, I think we realize afresh many, many times just how much we need God.

Today was one of those days for me.  Realizing I have nothing good to offer in and of myself, I cried out to God throughout the day.  A song came on the radio this afternoon that seemed to put my heart’s cry to music.

As you read the words, I pray that this song may be an encouragement to any of you feeling hopeless, discouraged, or at the end of your rope today.  And for those of you who aren’t struggling through that dark place, I pray that these lyrics would be a wonderful reminder of how much we need God.

“Lord, I Need You” by Matt Maher

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, you’re my hope and stay  

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

In Joyful Surrender,

Erica
