How do you define life?

Excerpt from the soon-to-be released, highly anticipated One Year Praying the Promises of God by Jennifer Kennedy Dean:

In the middle of a story about Jesus feeding a crowd with a few fish and a little bread, is tucked a sentence that encompasses what Jesus wants to reveal about Himself . He takes “not enough” and makes it “more than enough.” Not only does He meet our needs, but He fills us to overflowing, so we can reach out to others in need. 

Is there a situation in your life that you have been defining in terms of what you have instead of in terms of who He is? 

You’ve already inventoried what you lack. Start again. Now take what you have—little, inadequate, and not enough—and ask Him to multiply it. Step out in obedience just as you would if you knew you were fully supplied, because you are. Matthew 14:20


**I can't stop thinking about the question "Is there a situation in your life that you have been defining in terms of what you have instead of in terms of who He is?" How does that speak to you today? What situation can you apply it to? I hope it offers you encouragement and hope as you face whatever lies before you.
