I am receiving a message "Resource Shortage" what does that mean?

What does "resource shortage" mean?  When I text my wifes phone I receive this message from her. I do not receive it from any one else.

I assume it's from her end. She also has a MOTO Z.

All I do is message. If my text messaging didn’t work, I may as well have no phone. I understand how important this is to you. I’ll be more than happy to assist you. For future reference, since this is a public forum, we ask that you refrain from entering your personal information here. When did this issue start? How much available memory do you have on your phone? What messaging app are you using?
