What is your “it?” When will you finally get that vacation? When will your kids get out of diapers? When will your best friend find time for you? When will God answer your prayer? When will the pain go away? When will your marriage give you what you need? When will your obedience be rewarded? When will the doctor call with the test results? When will you get that raise, you deserved three years ago? When will you have time to follow your dream? When will your prodigal son/daughter come home? When will they notice all you do? When will the betrayal finally end? When will you feel like you fit somewhere? When will life get easier? When can you retire? When will they find a cure? (I am not making light of any of these questions, my fingers even feel heavy as I type them out on the page!) They questions go on and on and on. . .
God could answer all those “whens” in your life today, would it be enough? You might think so, but is anyone or anything ever enough? Every time something is obtained or given, we move our sights onto the next thing. Every completion or success, we move up our sights up to the next level. Every resolution, and their is a new problem just tearing us up inside.
It’s sounding bleak, but in Kingdom Thinking, it is our makings for more. We are created for more than we are, more than we have, more than we know. Being made in God’s image, creates in us a desire for more than the status quo. Being made in God’s image, creates in us a process of constant growth. Being made in God’s image, creates in us a momentum toward perfection.
You see, perhaps the concept, of it being “never enough” is seen as “greedy.” But, in a Kingdom Perspective, it is a God-given drive to Him. It is a God-given drive for restoration of the Garden of Eden. It is a God-given drive for relationships built in the intimate image of the Holy Trinity: Father/Son/Holy Spirit.
Can you and I be content with our need for more of whatever “it” is? Can you and I expect enough to never fill the bill? Can you and I accept that completion is not something that happens here? Everything and everyone is in process until Christ comes again and establishes Heaven on Earth.
Can we surrender the search for “enough,” and allow more to claim it’s Victory in the making of a Kingdom in our heart? It’s a calling to be content in all our circumstances of never enough. I’d love to tell you, I’m there. I’m still searching for enough vitamins to slow this disease down. I’m still searching for enough sleep to see my husband fully rested. I’m still searching for enough time for friends. I’m still searching for enough strength to stand. I’m still searching for enough love, to see my girls through this with a legacy of liberty. I’m still searching for enough “ministry” involvement to give me a sense of purpose. I’m still searching on QVC for “comfort” clothes that resemble my “old self!” But, I hear the call. . .
Enough is never enough, because we are created for more in our God. May we pursue more together until the completion of our Christ? Let’s be better than just okay with never enough. . .Let the need for more, be God’s Victory in our life.
Let’s create a new title for this post: MADE FOR MORE
