What You Have Is Enough

February 5th, 2010

A river went out of Eden to water the garden . . and became four rivers.” Genesis 2:10

Whatever God intends, He also provides for abundantly.”

My thoughts today are this, “what you have from God is enough.”

From Creation, you can learn this simple yet profound principle: whatever God intends, He also provides for abundantly. There is always an order in all that God does, and that order consistently expresses His provision and loving purpose. At the beginning of time, God made a Garden in Eden, providing a river to supply the garden’s life and growth with abundance.

Before He commanded vegetation, plants, and fruit trees to cover the earth, and the fish and birds to fill the seas and skies, He provided a separation of the dry land from the seas. Before He created the animals that roamed the land, He provided the plants of the field to feed and sustain them. And before He created man, He provided everything that man and woman would need, perfect surroundings, ample food, companionship, and meaningful occupation.

God has not changed. When God gives you a gift or talent, He will provide an opportunity – the time and way to share it meaningfully to bless others. When He places a great desire in your heart, He will provide the occasion – the means to pursue that dream and find a measure of fulfillment, not frustration. When He allows a need to surface in your life, He has already made provision – His supply for your satisfaction. When He gives you a command, He will provide the means and ability – to obey Him. “For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him.” Philippians 2:13 NLT.

Here is the Bible’s assurance for confidence in your Father’s sufficiency. “As your days, so shall your strength be . . my God will provide all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19/Deuteronomy 33:25 NKJV. God always provides out of the vast measure of His glorious riches, and sufficient to the requirements of your day! What you have that God has given you is enough, and when and if that is not, He will give you more or multiply what you have. Isn’t that all that you really need to know?

My prayer for you today is to know what you have from God is more than enough.
