Devotional: Truth Over Lies W2D2

Tuesday – God is Not Enough
Read: Philippians 4:19; Psalm 73:23-26; 2 Corinthians 12:9
SOAP: Philippians 4:19; 2 Corinthians 12:9

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.-Philippians 4:19

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.-2 Corinthians 12:9

If someone wants to flavor their life with a little spirituality, they can feel free, but like fresh ground pepper on a salad, it certainly can be left off.

Jesus calls Himself the Bread of Life.  He is the life-giving all-sustaining One, able to provide for every need.  God is our portion and our strength.  His grace is sufficient in every trial we face.

Our problem is that we often lack the faith to recognize His sufficiency.  We rely on our own strength instead of waiting on the Lord.  God is with you and will provide for you in everything you face. How have you shown a lack of faith by trusting in yourself rather than trusting God to provide for you?

Father God, thank You for the sufficiency I have in You.  Help me to remember that You are always enough.  In times of weakness, remind me how You have always provided for me in the past.  Thank You for Your faithfulness.  I love You Lord.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
