Being in desperate need is rarely considered a privilege. Most of us tend to want our need fixed. We always look forward to a time when we have no real, desperate needs. To us, that's freedom.
However, our Father in heaven knows better. He has formed us to need Him. Our very nature functions properly only when we rely completely on Him. It thrives only under the full and complete understanding that anything done without full and complete reliance on God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, is a road to eventual disaster and hardship.
Everything Jesus has done and is doing for us is a call to depend on His Father. He did it Himself; now He is teaching us to do the same. What an amazing privilege to have a Father Who cares that much and a Savior Who spent everything to lead us to Him.
