He is greater than our need.

I have a great need for Christ.
I have a great Christ for my need. 
- Charles Spurgeon

This is a fantastic quote.
And one that brings great comfort.

We have received a continual stream of disheartening news the past few weeks.
People are hurting.
Sickness.
Job losses.
Broken relationships.
Wayward children.
Miscarriages.
Reputations tarnished through gossip and slander.

There are many who have a great need for Christ.
Broken, weeping, frightened, disheartened men and women.
They are overwhelmed, unable to see the rays of hope that flicker in the distance, and wonder how they will survive.
Praise God there is a great Christ who can meet them where they are - and make them whole.

Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. I Peter 5:7

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you;
He will never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22

The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
