“Is God enough for me?”: meditation on Psalm 78:20

July 13, 2019

Psalm 78:20: “He struck the rock so that water gushed out and streams overflowed. Can he also give bread or provide meat for his people?”

Of course God could have given Israel bread and meat in the wilderness, but he chose not to. Israel’s test was to find satisfaction in God alone—not “God plus bread” or “God plus meat.” I’m convinced that God’s ultimate purpose for the trials that I face is similar: “Is God enough for you, Brent, or do you think you need something else?”

What about you?

    I think that people look to God to fill the gaps in their lives versus letting God be their purpose in lives and anything above that is bonus or reward? We get too wrapped up in our work and TV and Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Sports programs and the we have to squeeze in time for God, instead of putting God first.
