We need to realize that we need God more than the next breath we take. If everything were gone tomorrow, He is enough. The “stuff” we obtain is nothing. The relationships we build are meaningless, if we don’t know the Lord. Without Him we are empty, because He is the giver of Life. We need to ask God to fill the empty place in our souls and build our lives according to His will, and to fulfill His purpose.
“Yet, indeed I also, count all things loss, for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.” Philippians 3:8
Whenever everything we have placed so much importance on in our life, has been stripped away, we are not left empty, and we are not poor, or desolate and alone. God is always enough. Realization of His sufficiency becomes evident, when everything else is removed. When we come to a point in our lives, when truly in our hearts, nothing else matters. Deep down in all of us, there is something that cries from our souls, that we need more; it’s more than a new car, great job, etc.
While all of those things are great, they don’t fulfill the longing within our souls. It doesn’t matter how well we have planned our lives and how many of our dreams have come true, the things in this world were not designed to fill the empty place. The space inside our souls, that longs for our Creator, Who is more than enough and all that we actually need. We attempt to question our existence, rationalize our life and evade our purpose, but sooner or later we realize it is all about God. He is our purpose, He is the reason we exist, He is Life itself and He is always enough.
