A few weeks ago I was driving home from Phenix City, and I was wrestling with some things. I have all these big dreams, and some days it doesn’t feel like I can do it.
I was talking to Jesus about this, and just really beating myself up. You know how you can start with one simple thought, and then end up down a rabbit hole of lies?
Mine went something like this: This dream feels impossible. It probably is. I am kidding myself, I can’t do this. I can barely get through this season of life. I can’t do that if I can’t even go a week without failing at something. I’ll never be good enough to do any of this. I’m not even a good wife or a good friend….
You see how that went from one thing to a whole bunch of stuff that wasn’t even in question?
Our minds do that to us. They take us down rabbit holes, and we have to be so intentional. Thats why the scripture says to “Take every thought captive” it’s an action word. Because if you don’t, you end up down the rabbit hole.
So while I was going down this hole, Jesus stopped me in my tracks and asked me a very genuine question. He said, “Katie, is it enough for you that I believe in you?”
Now this wasn’t a correcting question, this was a genuine question. He really wanted me to think about this – is He enough for me? Because let’s be honest…sometimes we don’t let Him be enough. We think we need the approval or validation of others to be enough. Or we need success to be enough. Many times we are telling Jesus with our beliefs and our actions that He isn’t enough for us.
I don’t know about you, but that stopped me dead in my tracks.
I want Jesus to be enough for me. I want Jesus believing in me to be all the validation I need. I want Jesus beside me to be enough for any storm. I want what He did on the cross to be enough for me. I don’t want to send Him the message that the cross wasn’t enough. Because it absolutely was.
I want to encourage you today to look at the areas of your life where you may be telling God He isn’t enough for you. The places where you are communicating that His promises aren’t enough or that you don’t believe them.
Friends, He is absolutely enough. Just Him being with us is enough. The God of the Universe believing in me…that’s more than enough.
