There Is Always Enough
Blog by Scott Wilson
This May, in Denmark, we have had the highest recorded temperatures and longest period without rain in 100 years. This is unheard of here as usually might take place in August, but May?!
I’m glad for it as February and March were some of the severest cold months around as well, in fact I caught pneumonia!
Psalms 63:1 NIV
“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.”
Even with these difficult seasons I still am amazed by how much resource this earth holds. We continue to build, populate and increase our numbers but…..there is always enough!
Even in difficult seasonal times there is enough food, water, resource and life for us all. This is because the earth is full of resource rather than a pie to cut which eventually runs out. This is how many people see life. A pie with limits.
Denmark will soon be lush and green again as the rains return (although not too soon I hope) with snow littering the ground in winter. The earth and water supply will restored and life will flourish
I think many see God and His Kingdom in a similar way, that there are limitations and few opportunities for Him to manifest Himself or that He has little concern for His creation
That’s is simply not true. God is found always through the hungry heart the one who seeks. When He is found there is more than enough for us to enjoy!
I’m grateful for the opportunity we have in His Kingdom to seek Him and all His bounty because there is always enough. Here’s a few things I’ve noticed that lead us to know there is always enough when we seek.
First, even in difficult times or lack, He is there to help. I am able to keep the garden alive through reserve water supplies and storage. He has given us wells of water to draw on, let’s seek them out
Second, God is one of abundance. He wants us to enjoy this. With this weather in Denmark we see the fresh ripe new strawberries, tomatoes and vegetables flourish. Great fresh food is on its way! This same idea is part of His Kingdom. Seek the new fruit and life created in Him
Third, opportunity is near. With this time so many opportunities arise, swimming, outdoor dining and long nights. Seek new opportunities that this time brings
Last, we have a great conference at Wave coming up this year. It is a time to seek. To seek what He has for us, His abundance and opportunity. Wave Conference stands for all these things and is truly a place to seek the best for the coming year. I hope to see you there.
