What if YOU Believed He is Enough?

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.

-Philippians 4:12, 13

I wrote this week’s posts because of this verse. Well, to be more clear, I wrote because of this verse and a still, quiet voice within that, lately, has been challenging me with a question:

When you’re kicking through the rubble of your life, and all you find is Me, am I enough? (sound familiar?)

What do you do when Jesus asks you a direct question? You answer honestly and get your heart ready for some game-changing growth.

My honest answer? I’m working on my confident “yes”.

I want to be able to claim this Philippians verse as my own. I also want to know the depth of the faith, hope and joy that was present in the hearts of the saints I wrote about this week. I am convinced there is a powerful Truth unfolding as I turn this question over in my mind day after day. My faith is changing. I’m in a season where I am again reading the scriptures as if they are all new to me. The Living Word is challenging me. There are deep-seeded desires of my heart I feel I am being called to loosen my grip from. And yet I also feel restraints, I hadn't noticed before, loosening their grip on me. He is asking me, “Am I Enough?"

The question alone is changing me. So is my answer. It's a game-changer.

What about you? How would your world change if you approached every day with the belief that He is enough? Get your heart ready, because He is looking for your answer.

"Am I Enough?"

Work on your “yes”. We’ll do it together.

In the mean time, here’s a little weekend snacking as you wait for your next dose of Daily Fast Fuel to begin: Check out 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, John 15:5, and Ephesians 3:16-19. And as you begin to ponder whether He is enough, listen to this.
