Getting ready to speak to a group of teenagers, my heart was challenged by this question – Is Jesus enough?
You see, when I speak I desire to see life change and so I wait till after the message to see if it was any good or, to be honest, if Jesus is enough. If people are moved and I get a lot of good feedback then Jesus is good and enough but if not then I start questioning everything. So God challenged me with the thought, “Is Jesus more than enough no matter the outcome of the message?”
This opened the door to a deeper-heart check questions for me and I hope for you to:
Is Jesus enough if I don’t get that job?
Is Jesus enough if they never change?
Is Jesus enough if I never get acknowledged?
Is Jesus enough if my church or business never grows?
Is Jesus enough if . . . (You fill in the blank.)?
Struggling through this question revealed some idols in my own life and I pray it will for you. May God give us the heart of Psalm 73:25 – “Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.“
