Bible Verses About Needing God

25 Inspirational Bible Verses About Needing God

Our need for God is reflected in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

God says that He will be there for us in our times of need, and our times of rejoicing. He is the God of the mountaintops and the valleys. God is the Maker of Heaven and Earth, and the Maker of you.

I find myself needing constant reminders of my need for God. When things are going well, I start believing that I can sustain the success without God. And when it seems like everything in life is falling apart, I feel like I need to hold it all together.

Martin Luther said this: “The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands.”

Both of those beliefs are wrong.

I need God every day!
