17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3: 17, 18 (KJV)
How do you know when you’ve had enough? How do you measure enough? What’s enough for me may be too much for you. His enough might be far less than her enough. By virtue of its definition, it is difficult to explain. Even the dictionary is vague, stating, “as much or as many as required.” We spend our time, energy and resources and rarely do we get enough of what we’re looking for. The concept of satisfaction from having enough is lost on most of us.
But one day soon, when God declares that we’ve had enough time, life as we know it will end and all the things of this earth will be done away with. I am striving to know without reservation or hesitation that my Savior is enough. Whatever path He leads me into, whatever He wants to do with my life, I want my relationship with my Savior to be strong enough, whole enough, complete enough. If all I’ve ever wanted and thought I needed is never fulfilled in this lifetime, may the Savior be enough.
When your relationship with Him is enough, then you will be able to rejoice, no matter the circumstances. You will be with the Lover of your soul and He will indeed be enough.
