God, Do I Trust That You Have Enough For Me?

God, do I trust that You have enough for me?

You tell me that You are my Provider. That You and You alone supply all my needs and give me abundantly more than I can ask for or imagine.

So I should seriously ask myself.

Do I have scarcity mentality?

Am I constantly striving to do more and accumulate more because I am afraid it won’t be enough? Do I try to fill every minute of my day with checkmarks on my To Do list? Do I ignore Your whispers to be still and spend time in Your presence because I am more concerned about accomplishing worldly things?

Am I worrying about money because I am afraid of getting behind on bills or not having enough to do the things I want or buy the things I think I need? Do I push aside Your reminder that you clothe the flowers and make sure the birds are fed, so how much more will you clothe and feed me?

Do I compare my talents to others, trying to make myself look better, work harder, do more, and tear down the work that they do because I feel like there is not enough success for all of us?

God, let my goal be to adopt abundance mentality.

Let me be reminded that You have good for me. That I should never want to take what You have for someone else because You have given me so much.

Let me grateful.

Speak Your truth over me. That You have given me a divine purpose. That there is enough time in the day to do exactly what You want me to do. That Your will is bigger and better than my plans.

God, help me realize that you have given me enough. More than enough.

A life of abundance.

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Jeremiah 20: 11. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
