The Sufficiency of God

By   •   November 28   •   Topics:

In God’s economy, you must go down into the valley of grief before you can scale the heights of spiritual glory. You must become tired and weary of living alone before you seek and find the fellowship of Christ. You must come to the end of “self” before you can begin to live. The happiest day of my life was when I realized that my own ability, my own goodness, and my own morality were insufficient in the sight of God. I am not exaggerating when I say that my mourning was turned to joy, and my sighing into singing. Happy are they that mourn for the inadequacy of self, for they shall be comforted with the sufficiency of God.

Looking for comfort? Listen to this 60 second audio message.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, You have given me real life through Jesus Christ. My soul praises You.

    I am inadequate without God. The day I realised that and turned to God and involved God in everything in my life. I had peace and happiness on that day. Amen

    Thank you for the Nov Ruth’s Attic at the back of the Decision Magazine. Going back and reading the story of how God saved the Israelites at the Red Sea even when they showed little faith that He could spoke to me. At times my day to day struggles with sin or different situations can pull you down. Down to the point you begin to question does God really hear my prayers. “Look up, O you of little faith; let your doubting crase. The battle is the Lord’s”. My prayer today is Lord forgive me where I have sinned and have doubted you. Today Lord let me be still and trust in You. Thank you, God bless.
