I will be the first to testify that God is more than enough! Philippians 4:19 confirms, “And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” I unequivocally believe there is no need that God can’t meet. However, as you and I both know when the hard knock life comes crashing in we begin to ponder if God is enough:
When a friend betrays me, is God enough?
When I need to forgive what seems unforgivable, is God enough?
When my child has issues out of my control, is God enough?
When my marriage is on the brink of destruction, is God enough?
When I am not forgiven by another, is God enough?
When my loved one is battling sickness, is God enough?
When others don’t recognize my value, is God enough?
When I struggle professionally, is God enough?
When someone I love uses words to hurt me, is God enough?
When I am in debt and don’t know how I’ll pay my bills, is God enough?
When my past haunts me, is God enough?
When my health declines, is God enough?
When I am let down and disappointed in my life, is God enough?
If you can relate to any of these ‘is God enough’ examples, I want you to know that YES HE IS! Nothing here on earth is guaranteed. If you lost everything, You’d be okay because nothing or no thing can take away God’s love for you in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:38-39). Whether you live in a mansion on a hill or a shack in the swamp, Jesus is with you! Whether the world is for you or against you, Jesus is with you! Whenever life knocks you down, get on your knees and you will find Jesus.
My brothers and sisters, when life becomes more than you think you can handle, don’t quit. And certainly don’t believe the lie God is not enough. Instead, ask yourself, “Is God enough for me? Then open your Bible and plant His Word deep in your heart so you’ll always have the ready answer, that YES HE IS!! God is not only enough, He is more than enough for you and for me!
