Don’t allow worldly circumstances to compromise Godly contentment. In a lonely dingy prison cell Paul penned these words to encourage the Christians in Philippi, “I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” Notice that he didn’t say, “I’ve heard that in ….” rather, he said, “I’ve learned that in..” Paul’s beliefs about godly contentment were not merely a doctrinal or propositional type of knowledge. Rather, through experience, he had learned to be a practitioner of contentment. So how do we exhibit this practice in our everyday lives? Here are three very simply action steps to consider: 1.) During times of testing cast your anchor in Heaven and find your strength identified in Christ (Matt 6:19-20). 2.) Thank God for then blessings you already have (Ps 107:1). 3.) Believe that God will make good on what the enemy made bad (Gen 50:20). Exercising godly contentment enables us to live out our Christian duty to demonstrate the work of God’s spirit ‘in us’ so that the world may see the transforming power of our God ‘through us’!
