“Insufficient funds” – what an ominous phrase! In the great gallery of famous phrases, “insufficient funds” hangs in the same hallway with “the IRS will audit your account,” “a root canal is necessary,” and “let’s stop dating and just be friends.”
You’re overdrawn. You gave more than you had to give. You spent more than you had to spend. And guess who has to cough up some cash? What do you do if you don’t have any money? What do you do if you have nothing to deposit but an honest apology and good intentions? You pray that some wealthy soul will make a huge deposit in your account.
If you’re talking about your financial debt, that’s not likely to happen. But if you’re talking about your spiritual debt, it already has. Your heavenly Father has covered your shortfall. In God’s house you’re covered by the roof of his grace!
