Are you living in contentment?
Paul says he has learned the secret of being content:
“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:12, 13 NIV
Easy to say, difficult to live, but NOT impossible to do.
YOU CAN do it.
Being discontent can become a way of life and a mindset that will sabotage your joy and peace at every turn. It drains your energy and distorts your vision.
It is NOT God’s will for your life.
Q. What is the secret to being content no matter what is happening in your life?
A. Looking to Jesus for strength.
Because of Christ in you, you can do whatever is placed before you.
You can be content with:
where you are,
what you are doing,
with your body,
with your age,
with your job,
financially strapped or prosperous,
physically healthy or not,
in conflict or in peace.
YOU CAN do all this and more thru Christ who STRENGTHENS you.
By yourself, you can’t manufacture contentment. You think you need a miracle so you can get something you want. The bigger miracle is to be content with what you already have and trusting God to give you what you need.
There are a lot of things you can’t do right now but one can do is trust God to give you the strength you need for today.
