Have you ever woke up and thought, “Man, that was not enough sleep!”? I have, many times! Another thought we have a lot is,” I just don’t have enough time.” We use these phrases all of the time and never truly think about what it is exactly we are saying. Before we get out of bed we are already proclaiming we don’t have enough of something!
We think about how we just don’t have enough… clothes, shoes, money, time, computers, ipads, and etc. We even think about ourselves as never enough. Never thin enough, never smart enough, never creative enough, never energetic enough, never strong enough, never GOOD enough and you get the point. The “Never Enough” mentality seems to be the basis of our culture right now.
This never enough attitude thrives in comparison. It is so easy to jump on social media and compare ourselves and what we have or don’t have to celebrities, friends and even relatives. How do we get rid of this plague that has snuck its way into our lives?
Well, the opposite of “never enough” is enough. We have to get to a place where we are content. Where we are comfortable with who we are. If we keep trying to be enough, we will never be enough. Our “enough” identity is found in Christ.
(Psalm 16:5) “Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.”
If we learn to change our attitude and perspective to this one that David had, it would change everything!! Coming to the understanding that God is our portion and everything we need can be found in Him. He is the one that gives us security!!
As a child of the King, I am enough. I can never earn His love or deserve it. He doesn’t love me because I am enough, I am enough because He loves me!!
