Hello friends! I have a few questions for you all today; starting with this one: When will enough ever be enough?
-When will Christ dying on the cross be enough reason for us to deny ourselves?
-When will fellowship with & worship of God be enough for us to look at everything else as secondary?
-When will we be satisfied with our countless blessings?
-When will we see that just because we made more, doesn’t mean we must spend more?
-When will insignificant indulgences stop taking center stage in our lives?
-When will we stop using the lives of others to justify we could and should have more?
-When will advancing ourselves take a back seat to God’s advancement plan…already in effect?
-When will the blesser become more valuable than the blessing in your life?
I posted these questions as a means of self-evaluation. Every now & then, we ALL need a re-awakening from spiritual-slumber. In this country, everyone is in hustle-grind-exceed mode…even us believers. This mode can be good for keeping us on our toes w/ regards to our faith walk, but it can also be bad when the approach is taken to be MORE blessed. We can become so focused on achieving, attaining, and out-doing ourselves for more that it can lead to greed, insatiability, and ungratefulness. I think it’s prudent to ask ourselves, Why isn’t the glory of God enough? Perhaps if we can answer this honestly, we can also begin to discover ways to allow Him to be. But if we walk through life as if all is well w/ this it’s never enough state of mind, how can we be real with ourselves about it and begin to make changes?
Ephesians 3:17-19 says, Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as u trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love & keep u strong. & may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, & how deep His love is. May u experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. THEN U WILL BE MADE COMPLETE with all the fullness of life & power that comes from God.
I pray that we all are made complete in Christ and that He will indeed be enough for us all b/c in Him we have our being. Amen.
