This song rests on the truth that Jesus is enough for us.
This song was birthed out of a conversation with a youth director. The young people in our day are dealing with an identity crisis – an epidemic of teen suicide – trying to figure out who you are. I think this is something that adults deal with daily in the world of distraction, technology, and performance pressure. The world tells us that we are supposed to be self-sufficient. We are supposed to be enough on our own. Our culture is believing the lies of the devil and this song is combatting those lies, proving them wrong simply based on the person of Jesus.
It is a song that is going to take a lifetime of singing to truly believe and grasp. But in reality it speaks truths that will most likely never be fully accepted before Jesus returns to fully restore His bride.
In order to truly believe these truths we must rehearse them to ourselves daily. “Jesus is enough for us.” “If I had only Jesus I would have everything I could ever desire.” “I am made by the Creator.” “I am loved unconditionally.” “I am known by the King of all kings.” The world of lies competes against God’s kingdom by distracting us. Satan knows that if he makes us feel unproductive, and busy he can keep the focus off of God and on ourselves. The world is keeping us too busy. We are keeping ourselves too busy.
We must truly focus our lives on the only person who can satisfy our every desire – God.
All that Jesus did on earth was to point us to the Father. Not only that, but actually draw us back to the Father. When Jesus rose to the Father He sent the Spirit who unites us with Jesus. This means that Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension are enough for us because God now sees us through the acts of Jesus, not the acts of our own.
