He who has God has everything; he who has everything but God has nothing.
We have all, sooner or later, made the inquiry, “Is God really enough?” We have all at a state of depletion and misery, questioned Gods’ sufficiency. Regularly I jump at the chance to ask myself “Rhoda in the event that you lost everything and didn’t have anything and God was the main thing you had left, how beyond any doubt would you be that regardless you had all that you required?” So when my answer misses the mark, I help myself to remember three (out of so many reasons) why God is sufficient for me.
1. He Listens When No One Else Will
God has time, boundless time, regardless of the possibility that you were to converse with him throughout the day. You just can’t tire him out. God never says ‘I am occupied,’ or ‘Sorry might we be able to do this later, or ‘not this issue again!’ You are constantly first on God’s rundown of priorities and nothing you say will ever sound senseless or repetitive to him. I have had friends in the past who I wouldn’t dare talk to about a problem of mine over and over, or even an issue like the one I had beforehand looked for their advice. I don’t know about any other so tolerant and reliable. The God of the Bible is also called El Roi, or otherwise the God who sees and hears his children.
1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
2. God Knows You Thoroughly and Loves You Anyway
Let me be the first to admit that I am not lovable at times, in fact, I am a hard individual to love yet God cherishes me even when I don’t care for myself. Often I envision God as a companion who minds enough to design great and pleasurable things for me notwithstanding when I don’t merit them. It puzzles me more that this companion adored me and thought I was worthy enough to have come into this world in a body like my own and offer it in death in exchange for my life. It’s insane to you too right?
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
3. God Craves Closeness with You
Closeness with God has little to do with trying to live a blameless life, live by rules or traditions, it is not about what you do, how long you do it for or anything like that. Closeness with God is about knowing God for who He truly is. When you know who God is and you love and respect him for who he is, you would want to carry on with an existence satisfying to him. What I am attempting to state is that living a blameless life is an immediate aftereffect of time spent in God’s presence.
Besides, God longs to spend time with us and He wants us to consider Him to be a God who seeks to favour his children. Closeness with God definitely prompts us to see and trust that God is generous, liberal, warm and responsive not at all like anything and anybody you have ever come into contact with.
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks him.
