When is God Enough?

Standard

Devotion:  Romans 8:28-29

Out of all the verses in the Bible; I cant seem to get away from these two verses.

                                When is God enough?

Is it when you come to the end of your rope?  Is it when all your other plans fail?  Many years ago; our pastor would say, “God is good.”  Then his Sunday morning congregation would reply back; “All the time.”  Then the pastor would say, “And all the time.” The people would say, “God is good.”

Do we really believe the truth of Romans 8:28-29 on Monday, on Tuesday, on Wednesday, on Thursday, on Friday and Saturday?  It’s not a verse just for Sundays.  It’s a 24/7 kind of verse.

It is God who causes all things to work together for our good. My dear reader, that’s what makes Him so good.  His goodness is the essence of who He is.  This amazing promise is from the Sovereign Ruler over the whole universe.  He loves us and promises that everything will turn out for our good.  Why would He do that?

         …to conform us into the image of His Son Jesus.

The only way God can teach us the truth of this passage; is to allow some heartache and disappointment in our lives.  Some things do not make logical sense.  You ask, “Why would God allow this trial, this heart break, this problem; to come into my life?”  Why?  Why?  Why?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

We see life from our one dimensional, earthly way of looking at things.  God views our lives with heavenly dimension. Remember; God is transforming you from glorifying Him on earth; to glorifying Him in heaven.  His ultimate goal for you is to display: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control in a world void of these attributes.

God is enough through every season of life, through every good time and every bad time.  He is enough all the time.  Here is a promise I received quite a few years ago.  It comes straight from His Word.

“You will live to see the goodness of God, in the land of the living.”  Psalm 27:13

My friend; this verse is true for you.  God is good all the time and all the time; God is good!

Prayer In Motion:

Lord Jesus, I want to acknowledge everyday that You are enough!  You are good all the time and all the time You are good. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”  Thank You Lord for all of Your promises.  They are yes and amen!  In Jesus Name.  Amen!
