The Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Philippians then 4th chapter in verses 11-13 [NIV]
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
I can honestly say that in my own life, I’ve struggled with what is “enough” for me. If I can be truly transparent with you, I’ve even been upset with God because I felt like my corporate career life was cut short due to the calling of God upon my life. I had (and still have at times) great aspirations of continuing to climb that corporate ladder so that I could build that dream house, drive that dream car and take that dream vacation. I’ve had many nights where I was left somewhat like Jacob; “spirituality injured”, after wrestling with the Angel of the Lord. I had to learn through a very tough season how to really be “okay” with “my enough.”
My dad used to tell me, “Dev, relax. It’s going to be alright.” He was right each and every time. Everything always turns out alright. My problem is that it doesn’t get to the alright state when I want it to. I’ve learned that God’s timing is always better than mine. When He shows up, He satisfies. He is not just enough, He is more than enough.
Are you struggling with feeling like you don’t have enough? Feeling as though you are not enough? Remember that you have the opportunity to access a Savior and a Friend who is More Than Enough for you. Rest and rely on Him and allow Him to be whatever it is that you be.
