|Not Enough ???
Romans 3:23 All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
Old Story? We have all heard this scripture. What is the big deal?
When I was going through my Life Coaching and Counseling schooling I could
not help but notice a strange similarity in working with individuals. This similarity,
later became clear to me as a real Global epidemic called: Never Enough
Syndrome ( I made this word up.)
My clients and many of my friends, including myself, all suffered with this silent
cursing of who we are suppose to be and never celebrating that
which we are, in any given moment. This line of "never enough" thinking
convinces individuals they need to be something other than what God has
created them to be and that they are responsible for becoming
This is the work of the Dark/Satan. The Dark knows we abandoned our power
when we feel bad about ourselves or others. The Darks objective is to keep the
human race striving forwards to accomplish a state of perfection that does not
exist. Their thought process teaches "to be good enough" is how anyone can
attain the favor of life (God). One can never arrive because this state of "Being
Enough" does not exist, it is not attainable". Satan is a liar and a deceiver.
John 8:44 The Devil Is A Liar And The Father Of Lies - there Is No Truth In Him
Praise God....with Christ....we rejoice at knowing we are and never will be
enough, in this world. It is Christ in us which we so gratefully lean on for our
favor from God/Life. We are all sinners and none of us see the whole picture of
Gods Will. Scriptures says we only see in part. 2 Corinthians 11:30 If I must boast,
I will boast of the things that show my weakness.
1 Corinthian 1: 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the
partial will be done away
Paul writes that it is good to boast of our weakness. In our weakness Christ is
made to be strong. 1 John 4:4 (KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome
them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
As Christ followers, we recognize, we are not enough with out Him/Chirst.
So, being Not Enough in ourself is a great thing to embrace. Christ gave us all
the answers when he went to the Father in Heaven after dying for ALL sin, for
All times. He sent back the Helper. He sent back the Holy Spirit to live in
men/woman and among men/woman. He is our Guide to all we need to know.
The Guide on the Inside!! As we walk with God, the Holy Spirit shows us how
we can evolve into more Christ like nature. But never is it expected to have it all
and know it all and be it all.
Praise |Be!!!..."not being enough" qualifies us , in Christ, to be "more
than enough". 1 John 4:4 (KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Amen and God Bless!
