More Than Enough

As I acknowledge that my strength isn’t enough, I am moved to a place of resolute courage because I face tomorrow clothed in divine strength.

On the go? Press play!  

So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.  Mat 6:34 AMPC

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!  2 Cor 12: 9 AMPC

I will not worry or wring my hands, or cry or feel distress when I think of tomorrow.  I will not invite fear into my today because I cannot control my tomorrow.  As You lead Father, and the Holy Spirit guides, I will make plans for the future.  But my hope and security do not lie in my plans.  They rest in You – the One who holds a thousand tomorrows in the palm of His hand.  The One whose good plans never fail.

I will not live recklessly or unwisely as if I have nothing to lose. But I live in the safety of surrender to You, God, knowing I have everything to gain.  When the unexpected inevitably comes tomorrow, I know only one of us is surprised.  Your grace is sufficient, complete and lacking no good thing to fill in the blanks my weakness has left.  Your loving-kindness and mercy are the context in which I operate, the premise upon which my life is made.  You are enough.  When fear asks, “Are you enough?”, I boldly point to the One who is more than enough.

I am the weak and You are the Strong.  I am the needy and You are the Rich.  So I come under your covering as Your power is a tent over me.  I dwell in your strength.  I am weak in human strength but my spirit is strong.  As I acknowledge that my strength isn’t enough, I am moved to a place of resolute courage because I face tomorrow clothed in divine strength.  I stand firmly in today.  Present to now.  I don’t know what is coming but I do know You are with me.  That is enough to settle my stomach on these choppy seas.

Just because I don’t know my future doesn’t mean it is uncharted.  The course of my life is good and I am sure of this because You planned it.  That is enough to set my heart at ease as I peer into the darkness ahead.  As I focus on Your strength and choose to trust You, choose to be guided by You, I operate in Your power.  So my weaknesses fade away, covered by all that You are.  Today I stand suited in Your strength, enabled, empowered and at peace.

In Jesus’ name,  Amen.
