Bible Ballistics: BBs #203 My God Is More Than Enough!!!
As we talked last time about the safety of being in God’s hands, we can also rest assured in that place of safety because The Lord God Almighty is more than adequate to our every need—the very creator of the universe cares for you and me:
“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” John 10:9-11
And Jesus has not only given His life for the sheep, but also given His life for us that we might have not just life, but “abundant” life. Eternal life that delivers us from the condemnation of SIN! All because of God’s abundant love:
“For God so loved the world,
that he gave
his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son
into the world
to condemn the world;
but that the world
might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him
is not condemned:
but he that believeth not
is condemned already,
he hath not believed
in the name of the only begotten Son
19 And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness
rather than light,
because their deeds were evil.” John 3:16-19
And when we believe in Jesus –coming to Him as the only “way…truth…..and the life…”—then we have not only eternal life, but abundant life!!! And His abundant life is sufficient to anything that we may face in this life. And when we come to understand and rest in that reality, we can say with Job:
“Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.” Job 13:15
I will trust Him—because HE IS trustworthy. He has been, is now and always will be faithful, and I join Paul in declaring the sufficiency of God—because God declared to Paul and to us that He is!
“And lest I should be exalted above measure
through the abundance of the revelations,
there was given to me a thorn in the flesh,
the messenger of Satan
to buffet me,
lest I should be exalted
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice,
that it might depart from me.
9 And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities,
for Christ’s sake:
for when I am weak,
then am I strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
So??? Won’t you place your hope and confidence in the ONLY ONE who is sufficient to your every need? He loves you and will provide!!! Will you join me, and Job and Paul and praise HIM for HIS faithful love and grace? Look up!!! Trust HIM!!! And press on!!! He is able!!!
The choice is YOURS!!!
