The Stress of Not Enough

Psalm 127:1,2 If it is not the Lord who builds a house, the builders are wasting their time. If it is not the Lord who watches over the city, the guards are wasting their time. It is a waste of time to get up early and stay up late, trying to make a living. The Lord provides for those he loves, even while they are sleeping.

The Stress of Not Enough

One of the consequences of this high-tech, high-connectivity world in which we live, is that we can work harder and longer than ever before. And under those circumstances, it’s easy to get a skewed perspective on how much you and I can do, and indeed, need to do.

Have you ever suffered stress from not having enough of something? Enough time to get everything done. Enough money to meet all your commitments. Enough of the resources you need to get done what you need to get done. That can be really stressful, right?

I call this the stress of “not enough” and I’ve been there plenty of times. And so we imagine that we have to work longer, work harder, make more things happen. But that’s only true up to a point.

Think about it. There’s just one of you. One head, one mouth, two ears, two hands, two feet, perhaps a big heart, but that’s it.  We can’t make any more of you. We can’t put more hours in the day. You and I have a finite capacity which, in the big scheme of things, isn’t all that great, right?  So we hit our limit pretty quickly.

God on the other hand doesn’t have any limits. None. His capacity is infinite. His wisdom is infinite. His resources are infinite. And yes, even His cheque book is infinite.

So what makes us think that we have to do His job too?

Psalm 127:1-2 If it is not the Lord who builds a house, the builders are wasting their time. If it is not the Lord who watches over the city, the guards are wasting their time. It is a waste of time to get up early and stay up late, trying to make a living. The Lord provides for those he loves, even while they are sleeping.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
