God Is Enough

"The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." (Psalm 18:2)

"Enough!"

When was the last time you heard that word? Did your dad say it to stop your siblings from fighting? Did a teacher say it after asking for volunteers? Or did you say it when your mom asked if you wanted more dessert? "Enough" means that you don't need any more; you have all you need and cannot take any more. Can you imagine having enough video games to keep you busy for the rest of your life? How about having enough clothes, movies, money, or friends? You name it. It is hard to imagine having "enough" so that you could sit back and say, "There is nothing else I need or want."

The funny thing is, you already DO have "enough." Did you know that? Scripture says that God is enough. He is all you ever need. He is the Provider, the greatest Joy, Peace, and Life; He is everything you could ever need or want. He provides Living Water to satisfy your thirsts. He is the Bread of Life that can feed your soul (Isaiah 55:1-2). God knows all and is all. Friends, clothes, good grades, video games, and money will never be enough to make you happy. God is all you need. He is your Rock (Psalm 62:6), Fortress (Psalm 18:3), and Shepherd (Psalm 23) – He is GOD.

Job recognized that God was enough. Job 1 records that after Job heard that everything was taken from him – his oxen, donkeys, sheep, camels, servants, and children – he fell down on his knees and worshipped God. He did this because he knew that God was enough to sustain him in every situation. God was all that he needed.

What do you think you need? Are you thinking, "If I only had such-and-such, I would be happy!"? God is everything that you really want or need. He truly is enough.

God is all you ever need.

Question & Answer

QWhat is faith?

AHaving Faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of all our sin, and being certain of His truth. Eph 2:8-9 -- For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

BIG Christian Word

Trinity - (TRIN-uh-tee)

The word "trinity" is not in the Bible. "Tri" means three. The Persons of the Trinity exist as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God and has all the characteristics and qualities of God. In the book of Genesis, there is a verse which verifies that God was not alone in the world's creation. Genesis 1:26 reads, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." In the book of John, Jesus tells how important it was that He go to the Father so the "Comforter" (the Holy Spirit) could come into the world.
