Have you been in a place where you felt that it’s never enough? This world that we are living in is never enough. Our passion is not aligned with what we do hence our current job is never enough. Our life style is incomplete because we feel our bank account is never enough. When we run from pillar to post making ends meet,time for our loved ones is never enough. A child who is struggling with grades, feels he or she is not good enough. Overall this life is never enough.
In the bible we read the story of Sarah, who could not conceive was not enough for Abraham. But God gives Abraham a promise that they will have a child. Did Abraham and Sarah believe that God would be enough in this area of having a baby? Well probably to some extent they did but looking at their natural state being in their late eighties they felt they had to make a way on their own. Therefore Abraham listens to his wife and sleeps with the maidservant. But that was not the promised child through Hagar. God had a sure promise for Abraham and Sarah but they didn’t wait on God and tried to help themselves and God in the situation.
Do we sometimes try and help ourselves and God when He has a promise for our lives? Do we make amendments and alterations thinking that it is the will of God?
Just as God promised Abraham that he will be known as the ”father of many nations” God has amazing promises for us. In all our needs we need to know that He is more than enough. 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
If you are in a season of waiting , may I encourage you with this?
A delay is not a denial. When you think God is saying no, He may be just saying “Not yet”. He has only the best in mind for his children. God knows when to send you exactly what you need. Blessing , advancement, spiritual , emotional and financial growth are coming. It’s time to get excited again. It’s time to remember that you are not in this alone. You have an incredible ending in store. God’s promises are all yes and amen. And when the time is right, I the Lord will make it happen” Isaiah 60:22.
