Enough time … Enough money… Enough effort … We always seem to be short.
How many of us wish for “more” on a daily basis? Wouldn’t it be nice to have “more” handed to us whenever we thought we needed it?
A friend recently shared a cute story about her grown son’s quest for more. Aaron has autism and lives in an assisted living facility in a town close to his parents. He holds down a couple part-time jobs and takes care of his daily needs but requires supervision for things certain things like his medicine and finances.
My friend explained that Aaron balances his own checkbook; however, they only place small amounts in the account, usually making a deposit mid-week. One day, her son discovered he was short on funds. Instead of waiting for his parents’ to put money in, he simply wrote an additional amount in his checkbook ledger.
He needed more, so he added it in without actually depositing!
We had a good laugh at the story. But really, isn’t that how we often live?
Lacking in the funds arena? Use the credit card. A little short on time? Skip worship or Bible study. We add in what we don’t have.
Thankfully we don’t have to worry about not having enough in God’s economy.
The Lord has plenty of love and mercy to go around. And when we need more strength, He adds just the right amount.
If we’re lacking in faith, the Father will be happy to compound our little and make it enough to move mountains. And on days we’ve fallen far short in living as Christians, His redemption and restoration is more than enough.
We may not be able to pencil in an extra $100 and actually have it or wish another hour into existence, but we can always count on God to have the extra we need.
The Almighty will add deposits on the ledgers of our lives in permanent ink, and we never have to worry about insufficient grace.
That’s something we can record in our ledgers with confidence.
“Israel, put your hope in the Lord. For there is faithful love with the Lord, and with Him is redemption in abundance.” (Psalm 130:7)
