The Secret of Being Content

I know both how to make do with little, and I know how to make do with a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content — whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. Philippians 4:12

Learning how to be content with ourselves, and the circumstances we find ourselves in, is an important part of the recovery process. Paul tells us, in Philippians, that he has learned to be content in all situations. Paul is setting a Christ-like example for all Believers to emulate. The hindrance to being Jesus followers is living in a culture that values comfort over glory. Sometimes we must be willing to be uncomfortable in order to experience God’s glory.

Being content does not mean we are complacent. Being content is knowing that whatever is going on in our lives, God is in control. We can be content and still strive for change, growth and a closer relationship with Christ. Our relationship with Christ is always growing and developing, even though we experience contentment with Him.

The secret of being in contentment is far from a secret. It lies in the fundamentals of our relationship with Jesus. This relationship with Christ is a daily reprieve from our struggles, strengthening with each day we rely on Him. The stronger our relationship with Christ, the more we experience hope and victory. Christ is in whom we find our contentment and rest when everything around us is falling apart.

Written by Jackell.

Today’s Prayer

Lord Jesus, we find our contentment in You. Nothing else will fill the void we experience when we go to anything else other than You. We find rest and comfort in You, even when we face struggles and hardships. Thank You for being our contentment. Amen.
