My Monday Prayer: Enough
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Are we enough? Are our resources enough? Are our good deeds enough?
The truth is…no one is enough, has enough, or does enough. We all come up short! Our minds aren’t smart enough to know everything; Our wisdom isn’t complete enough to solve everything; Our strength isn’t enduring enough to do everything.
Loneliness tells us we are not enough for ourselves.
Discontentment reveals we don’t possess enough to be fulfilled.
Frustration reveals that we can’t do enough to reach perfection.
On a deeper level, none of us has enough of anything to enrich ourselves spiritually.
We all come up empty. If we had a spiritual bank account our balance would be zero.
One of the most encouraging words Jesus ever spoke were these, “Without me you can do NOTHING!” Be encouraged today struggling one, Jesus’ life is enough! God’s presence is enough. The Holy Spirit’s power is enough.
Daily, let your heart be wholly His, as He daily says to you, “My love is wholly yours. It will never fail to be enough, for I am your all, in all, with all, through all of your days.”
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:9-10 NKJV).
My Monday Prayer
Thank You Lord, that I can do nothing on my own, and that You can do everything. You never intended me to do anything alone. Your promises are enough to carry me through the difficult days, the times I struggle, and I can cling to Your presence and trust the Holy Spirit’s power to accomplish all that I cannot. I’m so grateful that all along Your plan was for me to not be enough. Your plan was to be in me, to work through me, to accomplish more than I could ever hope or imagine. Be at work dear God, in me, through me, around me. Change in me what needs to be changed. Remove my addictions, my weaknesses, my unhealthy desires, my pride. Teach me to pray hard prayers like “break me” and “send me” and “use me.” Accomplish through me what I cannot imagine. Fulfill Your will, and let Your Kingdom rule, on earth as it is in Heaven. Bring all things under Your command, and teach me to rest knowing that You are bringing things to pass as You desire. In Jesus’ name, amen.
