Thinking about the word enough and I’m brought back to mind these words from the Ezekiel Study that I am doing. 4 As the glory of the Lord entered the temple by the gate facing east, 5 the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
Filled the temple. That’s what God’s glory did. It FILLED the place.
Do you think that was enough?
It should be I think…but so many people don’t see the enoughness of God. They don’t see the filling that he does.
They look to so many other things to fill themselves up with, things like… money, people, relationships, stuff and so much more.
But I’ve observed in the people I see (and in myself as well) that when I look to anything OTHER THAN God for satisfaction, for that feeling that I have enough, nothing truly gives me that feeling. That feeling of enough.
I see myself raising my boy and seeing how I am fairly sure that I fail him…and then seeing how God uses me to meet the needs he has, the training that he requires, and I realize that, in God I am (along with his dad), enough to lead him to making right choices for God.
Still, seeing my enoughness in God, his enoughness in me, to meet that tasks that he sets before me… I still often feel the failure and the want.
It’s a tough one sometimes, to believe my claim, that he is enough….Cause I know it as a surety that he is, but sometimes.. I want to trust my own abilities more than his enoughness.
Oh, that I might learn more surely.. that God is Alone is Enough.
This is a five minute Friday post. the word prompt is brought to us by Miss Kate. Today the word is Enough..
What is Five Minute Friday? Well it’s a party of a group of like
minded folks who gather on Friday to do a five minute free write around a
singular word. AND THEN we take the time to offer up encouragement to
each other on this writing journey. It’s fun, though it’s not always
easy, but it is always good. Come join us won’t you? You are always
