Contentment in Circumstances





Some may perceive contentment as a lack of ambition. Contentment in God shows the world that no matter what comes your way, you are at peace. It’s a peace that if you don’t know God, you can’t understand.

Philippians 4: 12 – “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.”

If you’re not there now, you can learn how to get there. God promises to meet all our needs, no matter what. If we believe that, we can have the peace that passes all human understanding.

We don’t bring anything into this world and we will not be taking anything out of this world when we leave.

We, who are Christians, are recipients of God’s blessings. How we manage those blessings is up to us.

Don’t rely on material possessions, as they will all be destroyed some day.

God’s not interested in our comfort, but in how we react in our circumstances. Does it change our character or do we remain steady in the storms of life?
