The Dayenu Heart

The Dayenu Heart…

On Passover a key Hebrew word is proclaimed – “Dayenu”. Dayenu means “It would have been enough”.

The Jewish people proclaim “Had He just taken us out of Egypt but not led us to the Promised Land, “Dayenu!” “It would have been enough.”

A lot of people live their lives frustrated because they never have enough, they always want more. That includes believers. But the secret of joy and contentment is not in getting more.

The secret is in “Dayenu” – “It would have been enough.” It doesn’t matter how much you have, if your heart requires more, you’ll never be happy.

But if you have a dayenu heart, a heart that says, “It’s enough.. it’s more than enough”, then you’ll have joy in everything. If you’re saved, you have the riches of heaven, salvation from hell, eternal life, and the love of God unspeakable and forever.

That’s “Dayenu”. Open the eyes of your heart to thank God for how blessed you are – in fact, more than blessed, more than rich, more than wonderful. For if He had only saved you from hell… “Dayenu!” Everything else is icing on the cake… Dayenu!

All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 28:2

Write down on a piece of paper – blessings in your life. And lift it to the Lord with a “Dayenu” – that if God gave you nothing more, you would be blessed!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
