Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

Aug 10, 2022

In our adolescents, we believe we can do anything! Then one day someone or somebody starts telling us to “be realistic”. They say we are not funny, not creative, not smart, not pretty, not likable, or not strong enough… and the list goes on and on. It grows on us and forms us into people who settle in all areas of life. We start believing the lies that we are not... And yet God has always told us WE ARE!

We are made in His image! We are fearfully and wonderfully made. - Psalm 139:13,14

That if we just believe we can say to a mountain move and it will move, that in Christ Jesus, God has created in advance good works for YOU to do. - Ephesians 2:10

Not for someone else to do, but for YOU TO DO! How many tragic individual loses could have been avoided if we believed that “I Am Enough”? It took a secular therapist to teach people that the human mind is not complex, but very simple. The mind simply needs to remember that “I AM ENOUGH”. When a therapist could not help a certain suicide patient, the therapist called Marisa Peer.

She would simply help the patient to know that they don’t think that they are enough. She would then have them repeat the simple truth to themselves several times a day, “I AM ENOUGH” until the patient truly believed it. Marisa became world renowned because her therapy was effective. Actors, athletes, business owners, and people of all walks of life would call her and still do.

Jesus taught this simple truth to his disciples and He speaks it to us... Go, do good works, faith as a mustard seed. What is Jesus saying to you? How about to the students and families you serve? I HAVE ALREADY MADE YOU TO BE ENOUGH. Now go and “do the same works that I have been doing, and even greater works…” - John 14:12.

You are enough! If you fall down, get back up, and keep moving forward! Say it Now: “I AM ENOUGH”!
