When Enough Is Really Enough

When trials and tribulations are too much to bear, you might wonder when enough is really enough. However, every tribulation you encounter has to run its course. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope makes us not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us (Romans 5:3-5).

There are various tribulations that you will encounter in this world, but every tribulation will make you stronger. You have to thank God in all circumstances, as you don’t know what He’s working out through them. So instead of moping over your broken heart, thank God that your heart has been broken. Had it not been broken, how would you learn to be strong?

How can you learn how to stand, if you have never fallen? That’s where trust and faith comes in. Through any situation that you encounter, there’s a purpose. As a result, you must remember that God will work through it for your good (Romans 8:28). I am sure so many times, you have proven this to be true. It’s always great to have everything good in life, without having to go through any bad times, but this world is far from perfect. God did not promise you days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sunshine without rain. All in all, He did promised strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Do It Anyway

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

I know almost all adults might answer ‘yes,’ to this question, especially if they have moved away from their parents’ home, and are working and taking care of themselves. However, independence appeals to all ages. It means “freedom from the control, influence, support, and aid of others.”

In reading a devotion by Bill Chowder, he too stated that, “It’s not surprising that teenagers talked about gaining their independence.”  However, as I delved deep into this devotion, he spoke of a craving for dependence, which is a spiritual recognition and acceptance of our deep spiritual dependence on the One who gives life.  Jesus stated, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

In this dangerous and troubled world, you need the vine to sustain all your spiritual nutrients, or else you will be spiritually malnourished. If you are spiritually malnourished, you won’t be able to withstand the enemy and all the chaos and calamity that he throws at you.

By and large, when you think that you are independent, think about the one who you have to depend on – Jesus.
