God is sufficient even in the wilderness times of our lives. Is your life in a turmoil right now? God is sufficient! To me, He is proving Himself to be the All-Sufficient God and yes He is amazing. There have been a lot of changes in our family lately - from a child going through a divorce and moving home for a time to two teenage grandsons living with us every other week. Big changes! But, again God is sufficient.
Add to all this, the places of service to which God has called me and it makes for a rather full plate. Some weeks I ask God how am I going to accomplish all that is before me and He assures me it is going to be okay. He truly amazes me!
This week was especially busy as I was completing the next study for Sunday School. How could I get it finished with everything else going on? On Friday, those booklets/worksheets were compiled and ready to distribute on Sunday. I looked back at the week and thought - "Thank you God!" He had amazed me at the accomplishments of the week. It is His strength, not mine. He truly is my Provider. I pray He is yours as you experience difficult or wilderness times.
Psalm 57:1 "Have mercy on me O God, have mercy on me, for in You my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster (calamity, difficulty) has passed."
Note: There will be a part 2 to this story - as I went from mountaintop to valley. Through it all, God still amazes me.
