More Than Bread Devotional for 4/28/11

3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,
for we have had more than enough of contempt.
4Our soul has had more than enough
of the scorn of those who are at ease,
of the contempt of the proud.  – Psalm 123:3-4

Have you ever gotten to the point that you have had enough?  I am sure that most of us have.  Enough of annoyance or insult or scorn to last a lifetime will drive you to the point of distraction or frustration or worse.  The psalmist has expressed that for all of us in God’s Word.  He doesn’t offer us an answer, just a remedy.  We take these things to the Lord.  He is our helper and our defender.  He offers us a different sort of enough.  He gives us enough mercy, grace, patience and everything we need.  He is enough.
