As I was meditating of God’s resource for my life and for the His children, the word “Enough” kept coming to mind. We say that Jesus is enough, but then we live a life that is contrary to that quiet confident understanding. While teaching this week about true ministry, I gave a definition of ‘Ministry’; It is when Divine Resources meet Human Needs through loving channels to the Glory of God. Sometimes we think God has called us to be ‘Manufacturers’, but in reality He has called us to be ‘Distributors’. We are to be channels of Truth and Blessing to those around us. We do not have the ability to make people believe, surrender or serve God. Only God can manufacture each need for the human heart. He has the answer. He is Enough!~
C.H. Spurgeon once told of a time when he had just finished a heavy day’s work. He was riding home and was very tired and weary in his spirit, when he suddenly thought of “My Grace Is Sufficient For Thee”, 2 Corinthians 12:9. He smiled and said, “I should think it is, Lord!” Then he started laughing as the thought made him think of how foolish our unbelief is to God. It would be like if a small fish that was very thirsty was afraid it might drink the river dry, and the river said, “Drink away, little fish, my stream is sufficient for thee.” Or, if a man on top of a mountain feared that he would exhaust the oxygen in the atmosphere, and earth might say, “Breathe away, oh man, and fill thy lungs ever; my atmosphere is sufficient for thee.” Regardless of the circumstances life presents to each of us, it is vital that we allow His grace to play its role in our hearts and lives. His grace never runs out, and it is always sufficient!
