My flesh may and my heart may fail, but GOD is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:36
Have you ever asked yourself the haunting question, “What’s wrong with me?”
You snap at your husband. And a voice whispers, “What’s wrong with you?” You let down a friend. You don’t finish a project. You let your kids down. You didn’t finish your bible study. And you hear it again and again, “What’s wrong with you?”
You finish the day and go to bed with a sigh, pull the covers over your head (cause that’s where we all want to hide, right) , and close the day with the question: “What’s wrong with me?”
When you fail, struggle, or face obstacles, do you feel like you are not enough?
Are you enough?
There are two answers to this question.
The first is, of course not. You’re frail. You’re human. You fail. None of us are perfect. But because of what God has done for us, because of Christ who died for us, because of the Spirit within us, that’s not the final answer. (Happy Dance… Thank you Jesus)
The second and answer is, yes, we are enough and so much more.
Here is a story from a book:
“Lord,” I asked, “why do women feel as if we’re not enough?”
It seemed I heard a whisper in response: “Because they’re not.”
For a moment I thought I had some holy static happening.
“Excuse me, God, it sounded like you said we’re not enough. Could you repeat that, pretty please?”
Again, gently and firmly, “You are not enough.”
By then I started thinking perhaps my heart had dialed the wrong number and the devil was on the line. But in that pause it seemed God finished the sentence: “You are not enough . . . in me you are so much more.”
We are much more than pretty . . . we are wonderfully made.
We are much more than likeable . . . we are deeply loved.
We are much more than okay . . . we are daughters of the King.
I think the enemy tricks us into believing we are not enough because he knows if we discover the truth, we’ll be unstoppable.
In Christ, we have everything we need. You are rescued from the question that haunts you, “What’s wrong with me?” Instead, you can ask, “Who’s within me?”
