Through the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. Habakkuk 3:17-18
Jesus is Immanuel, God with us and He is Enough! When things in your life are flowing smoothly, it is easy to trust in His sufficiency. However, when you encounter rough patches, one after another after another, you may sometimes feel that his provision is inadequate. This is when your mind tends to go into high gear: obsessing about ways to make things better. There is nothing wrong with seeking solutions, but problem solving can turn into an addiction: your mind spinning with so many plans and possibilities that you become confused and exhausted.
To protect yourself from this mental exhaustion you need to remind yourself that Jesus is always with you, taking care of you. It is possible to rejoice in him, to proclaim his sufficiency even during the most difficult times. This is a supernatural work, empowered by Christ’ Spirit who lives in you. (Greater is He who lives in you, than he who lives in the world) It is also a decision that you make day by day and moment by moment. Choose to be joyful in Jesus, your Savior, for indeed Jesus is Enough.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends
