Today’s devotional is teaching us what endless amounts we have available to us. Reading this devotional today just gave me the most remarkable smile and joy in my heart. God knew I needed it today and provided it at the perfect time. I had a rough few days where my physical limitations were waying heavy on my mind. Memories of things I used to be able to do were floating through my mind. The burden I put upon my husband weighted heavy on my heart, as it creaps to the forefront when I see how much more sits on his shoulders, due to my disability. Preparing for this move to a smaller home, has been a huge task for him. It is on him alone to repair, paint, and prepare each room, so it is shown in it’s best light to any potential home buyers. That is all on top of physically packing each item we own, and I have been guilty of saving so much that I don’t truly need. So as my guilt took over, for something that I can’t even control, my heart broke for his burden. Then today I read this beautiful message and my heart has hope again. What our God is, is enough for every one of us. We never once, get more on our shoulders than we can endure. He simply would not allow for that to happen. His power can create our world, can form mountains, animals. After creating them all, He made man with His very own hands, His top creation. The strength of His power, insurmountable and promised to us when needed. How can we not rejoice in what we have, when we could never need more than what we already have available to us at any moment. How could we not be thankful and praise our God for His wondrous gifts? We simply need these reminders every now and then to wake us up. Perhaps for example, you start to take the gift that is our toes for granted, you go and stub a toe, or drop something on one, and you will quickly be reminded how much we rely on these tiny digits throughout every day to help us balance our weight, so that we can walk. It often takes these bits of calamity to open our eyes to what we already have, but simply take for granted. God knows what He is doing. His grace is sufficient for us. We could never out give God, as He knows our needs before we are even aware of them. We have been given a blank check signed and ready for us to simply put in the need, and it will be provided. Doesn’t that just make you want to get on your knees and praise Him in thanks? We are so so very blessed.
