Thought of the day (11)

Thought of the day: God is enough. This simple statement is one that we as Christians say we believe yet don't live out in our lives. We all go through hard times where we lose a loved one, friend, job, possession, or friend. Our first reaction is to say that we are less of a person without them/that. The truth is that God is MORE than enough.

In fact, I have found that there are times in everyone's lives that we feel that nothing is going our way. Times when "everything" is being ripped away from us. Satan likes to tell us during these times that those things or people are who define us and we all too often fall into that lie. What we should be doing is seeing how God is our everlasting. He gives us strength to push through each day in His comforting and Holy name. That we have an everlasting identity in Christ Jesus. God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

My prayer for you today is first that you may know God is enough. No matter what happens today or in each day on your journey of life, what things are lost or taken away, that you can find rest and peace in that simple truth. I pray that you also may know that there is nothing you can do to get, or make God stop, loving you, because His love is perfect and unconditional. Finally, I pray that you may know who you are in Christ. A new creation who is created with a vital purpose and importance to God's plan to reach a lost world. You are a Son of God, whom is the most caring father you could imagine. Who knows your needs before even you do, and who longs to provide for those needs if only you would lift them up to Him.

Psalms 46:1-3

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 10That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

2 Timothy 1:7

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

I will never tremble, I will never fear, I know that you are able to rescue me! My 6year old daughter (then 5) sang "You alone are my Rock and my salvation. You alone are the one I can always run to. You alone are my fortress and my refuge. You alone are my God I will not be shaken. Though the Earth may rumble, though the oceans roar, though the mountains crumble and fall in the sea. I will never tremble I will never fear, I know that you are able to rescue me." She did it in front of about 100 people in the church her grandparent attend. It was one of the proudest moments in my life. When you used that scripture it reminded me of that day and how blessed I am. Love that you are such a solid inspiring young man.

That's awesome! It's always inspiring to me to see young girls and boys get up and get involved in church. I can't imagine, but hopefully one day I will know, how proud that has to make you feel. Thank you for sharing!
