I was struck with a thought today while thinking about the areas of my heart that the Lord is calling me to change, alter or see differently and I was struck with a thought. This thought came within a prayer that my friend and fellow writer for A Relentless Millennial, Becca Mabry, prayed over me a couple weeks ago. She said, “Father, help her see that YOU are enough, and that she is enough.”
Often when I take a serious look at my heart, my wants and desires, my prayer life and my heart for worship, I don’t act and live as if He is enough…nor as if I am enough.
Enough to make a difference.
Enough to lead.
Enough to succeed.
Enough to someone.
Enough to have influence.
And the Lord pressed on my heart today that first of all, He is enough.
He has always been enough and will always be enough. When I don’t understand why I’m still single at 24, I ultimately know that right now He is enough. When you’re sick and in need of healing that doesn’t seem like it’s headed your way, He is enough. When your marriage isn’t as strong as it once was, He is enough. When you are financially struggling, He is enough.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
On the flipside (which is sometimes even harder to grasp), we are precious in His sight. We are his handiwork. We are enough.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. (Isaiah 43:4)
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
So for the heart who doesn’t feel capable to lead, know that you are loved, cherished and empowered to step in confidence into your calling. We don’t need to feel equipped – we need to act in obedience.
Let’s take a few minutes today to remember in a heart of worship who we are and Whose we are! Remember-
He is enough, and so are you.
