Consider these: 1 Samuel 1:1-8 - About Hannah and Elkanah (mother and father of Samuel). Hannah's womb had been closed and therefore she could not bare any children. She was ridiculed by her rival who had children and one such day where she spent her time mulling over her fate, Elkanah asks, " 8Her husband Elkanah would say to her, â€œHannah, why are you weeping? Why donâ€™t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Donâ€™t I mean more to you than ten sons?â€" Eli was a good man. He gave Hannah a double portion because he loved her. But for Hannah, this was not quite enough. She needed a child which Elkanah could not give. 2 Kings 4:1-7 - A widow owed her creditors and at the point of having to pay back, she had no money. Her sons would be taken into slavery for any further defaults and she was desperate. 2 Elisha replied to her, â€œHow can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?â€ â€œYour servant has nothing there at all,â€ she said, â€œexcept a small jar of olive oil.â€ The small jar of oil was good to cook a meal but not enough to save her sons. Consider Goliath, donned in his full armor for battle. The weak point in his armor became his death point. The armor was good to protect all other parts but not quite enough. The lad who had 5 loaves and 2 pieces of fish- it was good for his lunch but not quite enough to feed the multitude. Have you ever been at the point where you realize what you have is good but you need "enough". Enough never comes by chance. Enough is not for the ordinary man. Enough is for those people who can believe in the One who does exceedingly, abundantly far above, what we ask or think! For people who can understand that the distance between Good and Enough is not only hardwork but Divine Intervention. The Extra that only the Hand of God can bring. Dare I say, waiting is good but not quite enough? We need the spirit of God to help us make good choices for partners that will bring completeness; that will produce the "enough". What else is good but not quite enough in your life? Can you believe God to bring you to a place of completeness and enough?
