Does the grass always seem to be greener on the other side of the fence? Do you wrestle with feeling like you could have more or be more? Keep Reading...
Philippians 4:12-13 NIV - I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. 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 everything through him who gives me strength.
The truth is - your life situation is constantly changing. Maybe you have known the highs and lows of having lots of finance, then little finance. Perhaps your financial situation has remained steady, but relationships continue to change. Maybe sickness alters your life situation. Maybe your fridge is out of food.
How do you handle the many changes in your life? How do you cope with your less than ideal circumstances? Contentment? This is what Paul had. He knew the secret of being content no matter what his situation.
How would it be possible to live that way? Paul says, "I can do all things through Jesus who strengthens me." Perhaps you have read this famous verse before. Do you realize that it is written in the context of contentment?
You have all the strength you need to live a contented life, no matter what your circumstances are. It is found in Jesus. There really is no reason, then, to walk in discontentment.
In fact, the choice to live in discontentment is the choice to turn away from the strength that Jesus offers. It is a choice to rebel.
Call out for Jesus' strength and walk the road marked out for you with contentment.
