Don鈥檛 allow worldly circumstances to compromise Godly contentment. In a lonely dingy prison cell Paul penned these words to encourage the Christians in Philippi, 鈥淚 have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.鈥 Notice that he didn鈥檛 say, 鈥淚鈥檝e heard that in ….鈥 rather, he said, 鈥淚鈥檝e learned that in..鈥 Paul鈥檚 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鈥檚 spirit 鈥榠n us鈥 so that the world may see the transforming power of our God 鈥榯hrough us鈥!
