Do you remember when you bought your first home?
Probably, no matter the price, you put a large bulk of your saved money into the down payment. That’s how it worked for us.
It was a tiny house and our furniture was the cheapest we could find in the shop. Compared to so many around us it was really not enough. But God has a way of taking our “not enough” and exchanging it for “more than enough.” He always seems to do that when we are looking, seeking and praying after His will, doesn’t He?
You see, the word “insufficient” doesn’t reside in Jesus’ vocabulary, because he entirely defines the word sufficient.
If we have Jesus, we have the all-encompassing sufficient answer to every one of life’s problems. It can just be very hard to see in the whirlwind of pain. He understands this and, in many cases, gently brings us right into His fold, when we are ready.
I look back on that tiny first home with great affection now. We have owned homes since that are four times the size, and yet that first home was where I learned about God’s ‘more than enough’ provision.
When we look for Jesus, no matter our situation – whether a small one like mine or a bigger one like death – we find him.
He is the door to our more.
He is the access to our joy.
He is the way to life.
He is the answer of peace.
He is the hope in every situation.
Jesus is always the access point to greater things. If you have walked through Jesus’ door of salvation, you are saved. Not just saved for eternity’s joys, but saved to enjoy Christ’s present ones in today.
