I can do all things through him who strengthens me.PHILIPPIANS 4:13

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
I wonder, will I ever be enough? For others, or even, more importantly, for myself? I’m not sure.

I’ve distracted by the voices. You know the ones I’m talking about. The voices that always tell you what you are not.

You don’t know enough to do this.

You aren’t equipped for this.

You don’t have the ability to carry this out like it deserves.

The voices say, You’re not enough. They tell little lies. That subsequently sound like they could be true.

This morning the Lord got honest with me, and you know how we all need that hard truth hammered home sometimes!

I felt like God said, You are not enough. You’ll never be enough.

I couldn’t measure up to my own expectations or even that of the world around me, and there was something freeing about admitting that. Saying to myself, Yep, you’ll never be enough. You see, it was a relief because of what the Lord whispered next.

He said, but Jesus. He is enough.

I could not measure up, but through Him I could step up. I could step into all the things God has for me. Alone, I definitely wasn’t enough to fill the shoes He had laid down, but with Him I could still walk confidently, walk forward, walk in peace.

I’d never be enough, but Jesus? Well, He had already paid more than enough for me for all eternity.
