Express His Glory in Your Life

Our Inheritance

Now here is a convicting name…because the truth is everyone has things that don’t feel like ‘enough.’  That is an insult to God.

Sometimes it is ourself we are dissatisfied with.  We judge ourself not smart enough, not ambitious enough, not pretty enough.  Other times we look at the world:  our friends are not enough–either in quality or quantity; our home is not enough–size or location; our car is not enough.  You get the picture.

We simply judge our lives as “Not Enough.”  We are both wholly right and wholly wrong.

Psalm 73:26  My body and mind may waste away, but God remains the foundation of my life and my inheritance forever.

Our bodies are frail–they waste away.  Our mind–the soul (mind, will, emotions)–is frail as well.  Both have earthly limits; we are not enough for the demands of life, let alone eternity.  But we are made body, soul and spirit.  Our spirit is the God-given capacity to receive God as our inheritance.  Only when we invite the Holy Spirit–the eternal God–in as the foundation of our lives, are we enough.
