OUR SUFFICIENCY IS FROM GOD

“Nothing like a word from God, a little coloring and a beautiful sunset to bring a little peace.”

Life can be overwhelming, even impossible sometimes.  God is the God of impossibilities, all the time and every time.  It is His specialty.  No circumstance nor situation is impossible for our God, not even our tomorrow.   

And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, (2 Corinthians 3:4-5 NKJV)

We are not SUFFICIENT.
We have not ARRIVED.
We are not ENOUGH.
We are not GOOD ENOUGH.
We are not GREAT ENOUGH.
We are not LARGE ENOUGH.
We are not WORTHY ENOUGH.
We are not COMPETENT ENOUGH.
We are not ABLE ENOUGH.
We are not QUALIFIED ENOUGH.

…to do one thing on our own…

We cannot do it.  We cannot do and survive life without God.

BUT GOD!!!!  Our sufficiency is from God!

He gives us the ability, competency and qualifies us to do all things through Him!

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV)

God’s grace, His unmerited favor is enough to get us through the crazy year we have called 2020 and the next and the next and until Jesus comes.  His grace is enough to help us get out of bed and take one step at a time.  Keep stepping! Walk by faith.  His grace alone is enough is enough to make us stronger.  The Word says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.”  We got the weakness!  He has the strength!  We have to count on His strength every day for every step.

The LORD is our sufficiency.
God is ALL SUFFICIENT.

The LORD is our completion.
God is already there.  He has arrived.
And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. (Colossians 2:10 NKJV)

The LORD is our MORE THAN ENOUGH.
God is El Shaddai, All Sufficient One. God Almighty!  (Genesis 17:1)

The LORD is our GOOD ENOUGH.
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. (Psalm 33:5)

The Lord is our GREAT ENOUGH.
God is greater than all gods. (2 Chronicles 2:5)
God is greater than man.  (Job 33:12)
God is greater than our biggest challenge.

The LORD is our BIG ENOUGH.
God is everywhere. (Psalm 139:7-12)

The LORD is our WORTHY ENOUGH.
You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power.(Revelation 4:11 NKJV)

The LORD is our COMPETENT ENOUGH.
For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created. (Revelation 4:11 NKJV)

The LORD is our ABLE ENOUGH.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV)

The LORD is our QUALIFICATION.
Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. (Colossians 1:12 NIV )

I enCOURAGE you in our all sufficient God.  He is more than enough to meet every need, overcome every obstacle and love you through every impossibility.  Let Him be your Enough in everything, even your tomorrow.
