Is God Enough?
The greatest lesson a soul has to learn is that God, and God alone, is enough for all its needs. I believe that this is the reason that all of God’s dealings with us are meant to teach, and this is the crowning discovery of our entire Christian life. God IS enough!!
No soul can really be at rest until it has given up dependence on everything else and has been forced to depend on the Lord alone. As long as our expectation is from other things, nothing but disappointment awaits us. Feelings may change, doctrines may be upset, the Christian work may come to nothing, prayers may seem to lose their fervency, promises may seem to fail, everything that we have believed in or depended on may seem to be swept away, and only God is left – just God, the bare God – if I may be allowed the expression, simply and only God…,
If God is what He would seem to be from the way He has revealed himself to us;
If He is indeed the “God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3);
If He is our shepherd;
If He is realy and truly our Father;
If, in short, all the many aspects He has told us of His character and His ways are actually true, then we must come to the positive conviction that HE IS, in himself alone, enough for all our needs and that we may safely rest in Him …. absolutely and forever.
Have a blessed day xx
