Rejoice in the Lord
Contentment doesn’t come naturally for most people, yet in the midst of whatever circumstance we’re currently in, there is always reason to rejoice (Philippians 4:4-7). Through comparison, the world tells us that what we have isn’t good enough, but our level of contentment shouldn’t be dictated by what’s going on around us (Philippians 4:10-13). Jesus gives us everything we want and need; however, the enemy comes to steal our contentment (John 10:10). Contentment isn’t apathy; it takes action. To build a heart of contentment, we must affirm God’s power and providence (Philippians 1:3-6; 2 Corinthians 12:8-10). We so often look at what’s missing from our lives and we miss what’s already there. Wherever God has placed you, be in the moment and be thankful what’s going on around you (Philippians 4:8).
