THOUGHT (Question): IS HE (GOD) ENOUGH?
For those who are followers of Christ, it’s so easy to give a quick answer here. It’s easy to say that, “God is all I need!” We can say out loud, “If all I had was Jesus, then that’s all I need!” It sounds good but no one wants to loose anything. We live in a society where we want more; we want seconds on food, we want extra days on our rental, we want more vacations days, we want more clothes and so on. It’s not bad to want but this drives another question; what do you want more?
I have heard people say, “If all I had was Jesus then that’s all I would still be happy because He’s all I need.” Sounds great still but no many of us in America ONLY have Jesus. We have Jesus with lots of other stuff. He has not become the ONLY He has become the other. I am not saying that we start giving everything away until we have nothing, but I am finding out that God is always trying to get me to trust Him. I want Him more than anything but I still want a lot of things.
We need to be reminded that GRACE is ENOUGH! Grace alone gives us enough reason to worship Him all the days of our lives. Like the story of JOB, we could loose everything but as long as we have GRACE then that’s enough reason to worship God. We could have the worst Monday ever but you still have enough reasons to worship God. He’s worth it not just because of what He is doing (or not doing) but because of what HE HAS AREADY DONE! We are saved BY GRACE and because of love. This is enough!
We need to be careful about what we complain about. Complainers say, I am not getting what I expected (am not getting what I want). I have said this many times; there are two types of people; COMPLAINERS and WORSHIPERS. Complainers will always find something to complain about and Worshipers will always find something to worship God about.
Grace says, “You don’t get what you DESERVE.” I deserve worse because of sin, but because of His GRACE & LOVE I don’t get what I deserve. So we need to stop saying things like, “I deserve better. I deserved that promotion. I deserved that gift. I deserved that honor!!” Be Blessed today that You don’t get what you deserve. Jesus saved us form what WE DESEVED!
Let be worshipers. The greatest worshipers realize the grace they got. They realize that they are a new creation. They realize that He is not done yet. They understand that HE IS ENOUGH!
How much is ENOUGH? He’s enough! Focus on Him and what He has done in and though you. I could lose everything but as long as I have HIM, it’s enough. He fills the fill. My family, my wife, my kids, my friends, my church, and my life is great but ONLY He COMPLETES ME! Knowing this makes all things better and keeps it all focus. He makes all things better!
