To him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us . . . (Ephesians 3:20)
Those who walk by faith and not by sight have learned the deep truth that God is enough, no matter what is going on in life. Is this the foundation upon which you have built your life? Is God enough for you?
- Is God ENOUGH when your health is failing?
- Is God ENOUGH when your relationships are in turmoil?
- Is God ENOUGH when you have been betrayed by a friend?
- Is God ENOUGH when your check is returned NSF?
- Is God ENOUGH when your nest goes empty?
- Is God ENOUGH when you suffer loss?
One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is to realize that God IS enough. God is enough to meet our every need, both physical and spiritual. God has not only met our eternal needs through the free and full forgiveness of our sins, but He has also promised to meet our everyday needs through the faithfulness of His service.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
My God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
English missionary Helen Roseveare said it beautifully: “There is a wonderful truth that God has enough to supply all our needs. Enough for salvation, enough for forgiveness, enough to overcome temptations, enough to persevere in adversities, enough to calm our fears and anxieties. Enough grace, enough love, enough power. His supply is sufficient to meet not only all our needs, but the needs of everyone else in the world now and at all times.”
So how will you know that you really know that God is enough? You know when God is everything to you, in both life and death. Is this the confession of your life?
This is the Gospel. This is grace for your race. NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
