Last night at prayer group, there was a devotion given on being content.
I thought to myself…why is it…that no matter what I have or don’t have, I can’t seem to be consistently be content?
There were some great verses presented:
5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”[a]
6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”[b]
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
These verses are great reminders on contentment. The first and third have nice message about not living in fear or worry as God will protect me.
My prayer today is that I keep these verses close to my heart and enjoy a content day.
