Have you noticed how we ask our kids if they have enough? It’s almost like a parent’s theme song. When it’s cold, we ask, “Do you have enough layers?” When it’s sunny, “Do you have enough sunscreen?” When they’re living on their own, “Do you have enough to eat?” We want to take care of our kids, so we want to make sure that their needs are being met—that they have enough.
God wants to make sure that you have everything you need to please him. He’s not going to let you go spritually hungry. The apostle Peter said, “God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.” He’s not some grumpy old man waiting for us to step one toe over the line so that he can shout at us, “Get off my lawn!” He’s not waiting to thump us on the back of the head for messing up. He doesn’t want us to sin! He wants us to be successful in our walk with him. So he gives us everything we need—he gives us enough.
If you start to feel ill equipped to deal with some hardship or spiritual struggle, just remember, like a loving father, God is on your side. He’s cheering you on, and he’s given you what you need to succeed. Trust him. It’s enough.
That’s something to think about.
