Have you ever taken the time to think about the word ENOUGH? Not just the definition and what it means generally, but how it influences and animates your life. Your faith walk. Your ability to understand how God wants to use you for his Kingdom.
“You don’t have enough” is nothing more than a lie from the dark voice whispering in our ear. Its premise pivots off the promise that happiness is correlative to “things” and “more” on the road to having “enough.”
But there is a price to be paid for not understanding how God views enough. It might surface in our finances; our relationship with God, family and friends; our responsibilities to others; or our service to others in the name of Christ.
Webster defines enough like this: Sufficient; Adequate; Required; Necessary.
Hmmm. Looks like we should focus on SUFFICIENT and ADEQUATE and let REQUIRED and NECESSARY take a back seat.
“The disciples said, ‘See, Lord, here are two swords.’ ‘That’s enough!’ he replied.” Luke 22:38
I ask God to keep my eyes open to what is enough. I ask him for the strength to resist the enticing lure of “things.” I ask for his intervention when my heart moves onto the “striving and positioning” highway.
How about you?
Do you know what the word enough means to you and your walk with God?
You may not be choosing between a 400 and 500 horse power sports car, but there is danger any time we make up our own definition of ENOUGH.
