Philippians 4:11
"Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content." ESV
It seems we have become a bit idealistic when we think about how our lives should be. The more we think about what could be added, changed, or removed to make it better, the more discontent we become. Haven't we all been guilty of praying and asking God to make our lives more content, making it more like we have think it should be? By doing this, we have lost the blessing of pure contentment in having Christ with no thought of our earthly condition. We are where we are for a purpose, His purpose. And it will all turn out for our good and for His glory. How can we not be content with that? Contentment is a process we learn as we walk with the Lord.
Heavenly Father, we thank You that contentment is freely showered on us for the taking if we will but get our eyes off our selves and on You. Help us to be more Spirit minded so that we will learn to be more content. In Christ's name we pray, Amen.
