Am I Enough?
Let me answer the question in the title: No, I am not enough.
Now, allow me to prove it to you.
In one of my classes, I had an exam where we had to choose two out of three essays and write about them in a little under two hours. I chose mine and started plugging away, becoming more and more unconfident as time went on.
The two hours ended quicker than two hours should, and the professor called for the blue books. Reluctantly, I turned mine in at number 57 out of 60 students. He flipped it open, and I walked out, praying for a miracle to get even one extra point somehow.
I heard the door of the room open, and my professor stepped into the hallway, holding my test in his hands. And there I am, ready for him to say that it's just ... that bad.
But instead, he smiles and says, "You're the only one to choose the one essay topic to write about, so you'll be getting some grace points for your bravery."
I'm almost positive I stood there with my mouth hanging open, but that's beside the point.
The point is that I was not enough to pass this on my own.
And God knew that.
He knew it when I started studying for the test about 20 minutes before, and He knew it when my pen hit the paper.
And He still gave me what I needed to be enough.
When God told Moses to lead his people out of Egypt, what did Moses say?
"I can't, I'm not eloquent."
"Lord, I'm just not enough."
But what did God do? He gave Moses what he needed to be enough for his people.
A lot of times I think that I'm not enough, and I'm probably right.
But that's why God is so amazing, because when I'm stuck babbling on an exam, or you're stressed out at work, God makes us enough. He makes us what we need to be to overcome the situation.
And that is enough.
