Enough

Psalm17.15

There are two states of mind.

 

  • One that needs more.

 

  • One that has enough.

 

The first are “like greedy dogs, they are never satisfied (Isaiah 56:11 NLT).

 

The second is satisfied from the first moment of their waking (Psalm 17:15).

 

The first eats more, drinks more, and buys more, but can never be fulfilled.

 

The second eats less, drinks less and buys less, but never has a lack (Psalm 34:10).

 

Which are you?

 

Within lies a secret. A simple secret which all too few experience.

 

It doesn’t depend on being in the midst of plenty.

 

“The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor is the ear filled with hearing” (Ecclesiastes 1:8).

 

It doesn’t rely on an abundance of cash.

 

“He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income.It doesn’t lie in a life void of pain” (Ecclesiastes 5:10).

 

It doesn’t even hinge on being pain-free.

 

“The afflicted will eat and (are) satisfied” (Psalm 22:26).

 

Gratification depends on what you stare at.

 

Where is your focus? 

 

Are you near-sighted

Or far-sighted?

 

The near-sighted mind focuses his eye on resources — that which he can feel, see and touch (1 John 2:15-16).

 

The far-sighted mind adapts his eye on revelation — that which is eternal and prepared especially for his soul (2 Corinthians 4:18).

 

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God…Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love him. For to us God revealed them through the Spirit…For those who are according…to the Spirit (set their minds on) the things of the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:12,9-10; Romans 8:5).

 

May it be, Lord, may it be.
