It’s Enough!

 

2 Corinthians 12:9 AMP “but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My loving kindness and My mercy are more than enough–always available–regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.”

As Believers, sometimes we feel that we are not enough, or aren’t doing enough. Don’t let us mess up, this leads to feelings of unworthiness. I’ve felt this way before and I thank God for helping me to see who I am and His love for me. We won’t always get it right. If you are experiencing this, do not isolate yourself. The enemy wants you to do that.
God says His grace is sufficient for us. That means it’s enough for us.
He is enough for us! We don’t need to have it all the way figured out. We have Jesus! That is good news. This good work that He started in us won’t be completed until Jesus comes back, as it says in Philippians 1:6.

We don’t have to beat ourselves up. He is enough! He fills in the gaps!

Let God show Himself in your life by understanding your weaknesses and bragging about His strength! Brag on Jesus! It doesn’t matter what situation you find yourself in. Where we are weak, He is strong. The Lord wants us to depend on Him and seek Him daily. He wants us to put Him first, knowing He is enough. I can’t stress that too much. Don’t walk around defeated. The enemy is defeated. Not you!

His love is enough! His mercy is enough! His kindness is enough!

Our Heavenly Father loves you with an everlasting love! Sometimes it’s hard to receive because you aren’t used to it, but slowly as you continue, day by day to trust Him with the 1 day, each day becomes easier. Trust Him with your 1 day. That means to take it day by day.
 You may have some vices you need to work out. The wonderful thing about submission to God is that He cleans you up. You can’t be too filthy. (However, don’t just stay in a place of willful sin. That isn’t what I am saying)
I use to believe that I was too messed up for the Lord to save and forgive, yet He forgave me. He saved me out of my mess. And some of my mess I was still doing after being saved, such as smoking marijuana and regularly drinking. I went back and forth with it, thinking I could control it or that God knows my heart so it’s ok. The Lord showed me that He didn’t want that. He showed me that they were strongholds. (I will discuss those in a separate post)
Glory to God because of His Love, and Mercy. It took longer for me to release myself from my past. I eventually forgave myself, and started walking in confidence.

I believe the word when it says, If God is for me, who can be against me? (Romans 8:31)
Walk in that. Know it and believe it. Get it deep down in you. Once you realize who you are and who God is, you will not walk around condemned and defeated. You will not be a slave to your vices. You will be empowered. You will trust that God will perfect that which concerns you. (Psalms 138:8)
Don’t trust in anything more than God. Don’t love anything more than God. Don’t put anything before God. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will set your path straight. (Proverbs 3:6)
What the Lord has laid on my heart is His love for His children.

I wrote a prayer but add whatever you want to surrender to Him ok? Pray this out loud:
Heavenly Father, today I surrender my problems to you. I surrender my children, my job, my health, my husband, my car, my mind, my emotions, my life and my way! I surrender it all to you Father. I want your will to be done in my life. I say Yes to your will and yes to your way! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will go before me this day and set my path straight. Where I am weak you are strong. Show yourself to me today Father! Show your strength in my life, in the name of Jesus. You say in your word that you will teach me the ways of wisdom and lead me in straight paths. I’m standing on your word and believing you. You lead and I will follow trusting that you will never leave me or forsake me. Today, I will shift the atmosphere wherever I go because He who is in me is greater than He who is in the world.  I pray in the name of Jesus that my light shines ever so brightly and I show love. I thank you for striving with me. I thank you for your grace and your mercies that are new everyday. Thank you Lord and I give you the glory, honor and all the praise. Amen

This is a daily walk but literally take it day by day.
One day at a time. Trusting God this day. Taking up your cross this day. Leaning on Him this day.
Tomorrow will have its own worries. (Matthew 6:34)
Be blessed

  1. Good read, very encouraging for times when you second guess yourself or not letting go and let God handle it. Will definitely use that prayer. Thank you

  2. Faith grows in the valley. Remember the wind when the storm was increasing when the disciples were in the boat. It seemed to be too much for the fishermen. In a panic they called out and woke Jesus. They were thinking doesn’t the teacher care? What is HE thinking? BUT if the wind hadn’t blown the disciples would have never asked WHO IS THIS?? That the winds obey. Jesus said PEACE BE STILL!!! Today sometimes the storms of life make us want to be in a protective bubble BUT HOW STRONG WOULD OUR FAITH BE?? We wouldn’t get to DISCOVER FOR “OURSELVES” HIS REASSURING “BE STILL” when the winds of circumstances howl. TO GOD BE THE GLORYYYYYYY!!!! #GOD NEVER SLEEPS.

  3. I really needed to hear this today. This just shows how great God is. He sends messages your way when you need encouragement. Letting you know that He sees what you’re going through and if we keep our focus on him believing in His strength no matter the situation, we will be victorious. Thank you Lord Jesus!
