"Is it not ENOUGH?"

Lk 4:21-30
Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying:
“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
And all spoke highly of him
and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?”
He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb,
‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say,
‘Do here in your native place
the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’”
And he said, “Amen, I say to you,
no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
Indeed, I tell you,
there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah
when the sky was closed for three and a half years
and a severe famine spread over the entire land.
It was to none of these that Elijah was sent,
but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.
Again, there were many lepers in Israel
during the time of Elisha the prophet;
yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”
When the people in the synagogue heard this,
they were all filled with fury.
They rose up, drove him out of the town,
and led him to the brow of the hill
on which their town had been built,
to hurl him down headlong.
But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.


Have you ever encountered a huge problem and resolved itself without you knowing it and all that is left for you to do is THANK GOD? These experiences remind us that truly God is lives in everyone of us.

But we still reach that point when we doubt His power probably because we are not contented of what we have. We want a lot of things not realizing that God gives us more than enough to live.

Today, let's try to reflect on the things that we have, the teachers that we have, the knowledge that we have, the family that we have, the LIFE that we have and the many great things God has done in our life. Then, try asking yourself again, do we still doubt God?
