More Than Enough

Ephesians 3:20- “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…”

Sufficient

Ample

Plenty

Adequate

These words mean “just enough.”

Enough food to feed the family.

Enough money to pay the grocery bill.

Enough light to read by.

Enough gas in the tank.

And that’s fine for most things.

But, what if you could have an abundance?

Ephesians tells us that God isn’t the God of “just enough”—He is able to supply more than what we think we need… more than we ask for or imagine.

He’s the God of Abundance.

The God of Overflowing.

He’s the God of “more than enough.”

Of Great Worth

I Peter 3: 3,4– “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

 

Thinking ahead to Christmas, holiday get-togethers, luncheons and so on, I took a survey of my closet to see what I might need to buy to wear… or at least to add in the way of a sweater or new shoes to an existing outfit. 

The prospects seemed dismal as I settled into my reading chair and picked up my Bible.

Then, I read the verse from first Peter. Inner beauty, not a glittery new sweater, was what it said that pleases God. And, in the noise and hustle involved in holiday celebrations, He asked me to instead focus on developing a gentle, quiet spirit. 

I may not be sporting new clothes this holiday season, but you will find me wearing a big smile… because I will be concentrating on what is important to God.

It is my gift to Him this Christmas Season.
