Life’s pressures are heavy on you. You are hit really hard. When you are down and nearly out, and when nothing at all seems to be working, God Is More Than Enough.
You’ve just had a break-up. You’ve lost your job. When your business has gone bad, and you’ve lost everything, God Is More Than Enough.
When all else fails, God is your portion and your reward. When people forget you and forsake you, God has you in the palms of His hands, and your broken walls are always before Him.
When your health is discouraging, and the doctor gives a bad report, by His stripes you are healed.
When love turns to hate, God’s unconditional love shields you and He awaits with great longing to hear your voice each day. God is really more than enough.
Isaiah 49:15 – [And the Lord answered] Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
And in Isaiah 49:16 – See, I have written your name on my hand. Ever before me is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins.
And, even if God is not going to give you what you want right now…even if He is not going to heal you now, even if your marriage is not going to get better now or ever, He alone is enough. In good health and in sickness, in riches and in poverty, in rejoicing and in sorrow, God’s presence will ALWAYS be with you.
He will shield you with His love and faithfulness. The presence of challenges doesn’t negate the presence of God. God won’t leave you because you are in debt or in a bad marriage.
The psalmist says, “When my heart is overwhelmed within me. Lead me to a rock that is higher than I am. For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.”– Psalm 61:2&3
It is also written, The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.— Proverbs 18:10
And the apostle James writes, Is anyone among you in trouble? let him say prayers. Is anyone glad? let him make a song of praise. –James 5:13
Such uncomfortable times, are times for believers to lay at the feet of the Almighty, and in the arms of the Comforter, to pour out their hearts and feelings, to give praise and to worship, and to wait in the presence of God. And renew their strength.
Let Us Pray
God, My Provider
Heavenly Father, You who own the cattle on a thousand hills, You are more than enough for me. Dear Lord, You are the richest treasure that I can possess both in life and in death. I can lose everything in this life and still be fulfilled in You. Lord, You are more than enough for me.
