Have I ever really believed that God is enough?
I mean, I've probably said He was. I might have even thought that I believed it.
But your beliefs are pretty much revealed through your actions.
Have I acted like God is enough?
Or has my life thus far been mostly a study of how God is not enough?
Don't I really expect God plus?
God plus personal fulfillment.
God plus healthy children.
God plus financial security.
God plus physical safety.
God plus a happy marriage.
That's the lie I find myself believing, and living, so often.
The truth is
God is enough.
And I guess I will know I am believing that truth, and therefore rejecting that lie, when my life reflects that God is enough.
When I stop demanding God to give me the things I think I deserve.
The things I think I have somehow earned with my good behavior toward the Almighty.
My self-righteous good deeds that I keep trying to stack up against my bad ones.
My mental list of all the commandments that I have so carefully kept.
O God, I am learning, as you are removing, that you are, indeed, enough.
