--adjective. adequate for the purpose; enough

"Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over all the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain" (Isaiah 4:5-6).

God meets our need in every circumstance: When the sun beats down relentlessly, He is shelter and shade; when the sun is gone and the powerful storms come, He is refuge from wind and rain.

Father, I confess that I often believe I need other things or people for abundant life. I say that I believe you are sufficient, but practically I believe that You are not sufficient in my particular circumstances, that I need different circumstances in order to be joyful and serve You. I have been critical and discontent; I have failed to trust You. Strengthen my trust in Your promises; open my eyes to see You as sufficient to supply every need, in every circumstance.
