God asked Moses this question in Exodus 4:2. Moses was waffling on God’s call. I wonder if I often do the same. I find myself focusing on what I “do not have” opposed to “what God has already provided”.
In Judges 7, Gideon didn’t have much of an army. He must have had some doubt that torches, pitchers, and trumpets were enough. They were.
In II Chronicles 20, Jehoshaphat didn’t have much to fight “the vast army” approaching Jerusalem but he kept his eyes on the Lord and marched out with singing and praise for God. That was enough.
In John 6, the disciples hardly thought five small barley loaves and two small fish were enough to feed thousands. Not only were they enough, the disciples collected twelve baskets of leftovers.
Whether we are thinking of Moses, Gideon, Jehoshaphat, the disciples, you, or me, there seems to be an equation that has God written all over it. It is:
what I have + God = more than enough
I must train myself to focus on what God has already provided instead of pitifully wishing that I had more. His provision is enough to start something. Obedience and trust in Him are the keys. What is that in your hand?
