the measure of abundance

Seeing as I'm here, broke as ever after I asked for more than enough, I can't say I want nothing but Jesus. We have kids to clothe and feed, bills to pay, and a car to fuel. We need money, not Jesus.

Right?

So I'd rather have something--oh, and Jesus.


In those moments when it looks like God has failed us, we've really failed ourselves. We blame Him for failing us when really He's been tagging along on our foolish escapades.

In those moments when it looks like God has failed us, we have the choice to believe He has--or the choice to believe we haven't yet let Him fight on our behalf.


How many times have we asked God to provide in abundance? And how many times have we shaken heads in disappointment because He hasn't?

Yet--
We have food on our shelves,
Clothing in our closets,
Money in our bank accounts--

Is this not abundance?

You tell me.

"I took my troubles to the LORD; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer" Psalm 120:1 NLT.
