DAILY DEVO...Is it enough?

If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times, "There's nothing to eat!" My kids had a way of standing in front of a full refrigerator and see nothing to eat!

Oh there was plenty to eat, but they didn't want to wait for it they wanted something to eat NOW!
That same "quick fix" follows us into adulthood if we aren't careful. We don't want to wait for anything. When we get into debt, we look for a "quick" way to make money or when we need to lose a few pounds, we look to the newest and "quickest" diet. None of us want to wait. And then when our "quick fix" doesn't work, we complain there isn't enough.

There isn't enough food. There isn't enough money. We don't have enough friends. We don't have enough time.

Jesus' disciples were with Him as He fed 5,000 with only 5 loaves and 2 fish, but yet, alittle while later they complained the 7 loaves that they had for 4,000 was not enough.

How "quickly" we forget the miracles God performs in our lives. We only see what is right in front of us and we complain it is not enough, but God is more than enough!

Tomorrow is Valentines Day and someone is bound to be forgotten or perhaps you will receive less of a token of love than you think you deserve. You may say, "Is THIS it?" or "it's not enough", but remember that true love comes from above, it first came in way of the cross and IT is ALWAYS enough!

"My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." -2 Corinthians 12:9
God's Grace is enough.
