And be Content. June 11
Not that I speak in respect of want : for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11
The key to contentment is realizing God has given you in your present circumstaces, whatever they may be,everything you need to be victorious in Christ Jesus. God is much wiser than we are and knows what we need and just as important what we dont need. So to be content is resting in what we have, enjoying God and those around us. Certainly needs will arise and we have been given assurance we can bring these to God in prayer and he will hear and answer our prayers. Even at times with miraculous answers. At other times it seems he withholds the answers but we know according to Hebrews 13 we can be content with what we have for he has promised to never leave us or forsake us. 1 Corinthians 15:57 says : But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory thru our lord Jesus Christ. Let’s thank him today for all that we have..!!
