Enough is enough

19 And my God will supply all your needs(1)

Do you ever find yourself doubting that God will supply all your needs?  You probably believe that God can supply all of your needs but somewhere in the back of our minds we kind of doubt if He actually will.   I think that doubt creeps in because our idea and God’s idea of what we need may be different.   For instance, I thought I needed a bigger better house about 8 years ago.  I prayed about it and began talking to my husband about it and my husband said ” No, I don’t think God’s in that honey.”   So, instead of praying about whether it was actually God’s will for us to have the bigger better house, I began to pray for God to change my husband’s mind about it….I know…. this is where I’ve lost you LOL….you can’t identify with that at all.  (hehe)  Well, God did not change his mind….and I’m so glad He didn’t,  because we would’ve bought at the very tippy top of the real estate market in 2005 and would’ve lost thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands in the subsequent crash.   God will supply all your needs….but let me ask you is enough enough for you?   My house was enough for us, it supplied all of our needs,  but enough was not enough for me back then.  When enough is enough for you, you become free in a way that’s  hard to describe….you no longer labor and strive….but rest and work as unto the Lord.  It certainly isn’t bad to want more and work to have more….but when we decide that enough is enough it’s a really peaceful place to be…if you get more that’s awesome, but it’s just the cherry on top of your sundae of contentment.   Godliness with contentment is great gain….He will supply all your needs according to His riches.
