She listened to the words, “You are more than enough for me…” guilt overtaking her worship. How can I say that right now, when all I can see is my age and my singleness? She cried out in the stillness of where she sat.
Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t sing the words of a worship song and mean them, and when that truth sunk into your soul, it stopped you? Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. To worship God with our whole heart, our whole mind is His will for us but how do we do that amid trials, tribulations, and tears?
The words of that worship song stayed with her over the next several days, haunting her with the realization that He didn’t seem to be enough for her. There were all these unanswered questions, still so much pain, though not near as much as this time last year. Ah, there was something to thank Him for, she thought, something praiseworthy. She picked up her Bible to begin that day’s Bible study in Colossians.
“Paul states in Colossians 2:10 that we are complete in Christ. Jesus alone is all sufficient and entirely adequate to meet our every need”!!!!!!
She looked up, knowing with all her being that He was pursuing her, still, in this SOAR (Season of Adultery Recovery) and would go to great lengths to be all she needed, to not leave her in this broken-hearted state.
She read the few verses that followed that emphatic statement of Christ being enough and then as the study asked, recorded all the ways that Christ is enough, for her…and you.
Verse 11 reminded her that she had had a spiritual surgery of her heart, a heart circumcision that helps her to put off the flesh. Verse 12 reminded her that because she had been baptised, she had put to death, and buried the old sin nature and had been given new resurrected life when she came up out of the water. “Maybe I should do that one again,” she wondered aloud.
Verse 13 reminded her that because her sins have been and will continue to be forgiven upon the asking that she was made alive. And verse 14 reminded her that she was saved from the failure of the law, able to embrace New Covenant life; that because of the price that Jesus already paid, she lived by grace, not a bunch of do’s and don’ts.
She closed her study. His timing was a reminder that wrapped around her, holding her close to Him, and in those moments, she could sing, “You are Enough.”
Friend, if you are going thru something that prevents you from worshiping with a true heart, meaning what you say, be still, ask Him to reveal the why to you; allow Him to minister to you and be just enough, all that you need.
